The European Way of Digital

On June 11th, Counterpoint and OSEPI are launching a new Bridges publication, The European Way of Digital.


Europeans worry about how digital technology is changing their politics, economies and societies. They have specific expectations regarding the role of the state in protecting them from the most negative effects of the digital transformation; and the European Union and national governments have well developed tools that could help manage the effects of digital. This collection explores how, in a world torn between an American model that is largely market-driven on the one hand, and a Chinese model rooted in authoritarian state practices on the other, a European Way of Digital might be the way forward.
