Digital Trust in Denmark – A workshop on trust and mistrust towards public institutions in the world’s ‘most digitized country’

On December 11th, TiP’s research group Data as Relation and SODAS – Center for Social Data Science at Copenhagen University held a workshop on ‘Digital trust in Denmark’. This workshop aimed to debate the hypothesis that Denmark’s increasing digitalization is facilitated by the citizen’s trust in society and the welfare state.

To discuss this question, the organizers brought together a group of researchers and practitioners across universities, the public and private sectors, media and organizations. The intention was to create an open and lively discussion where a number of different and perhaps contradictory answers to the workshop’s stated hypothesis – that digitalization in Denmark is based on a special relationship of trust between the state and the citizen – were gathered.
