Digital Disruption Requires a New Social Contract to Safeguard Societies, IE University Report Reveals

Constructing an inclusive digital economy will require collaboration between multiple stakeholders as well as bridging the gap with the private sector.

New research from IE University’s Center for the Governance of Change (CGC) highlights the need for a new social contract to manage the economic and social transformations caused by the rise of disruptive technologies.

Trust in democracy and its institutions is dwindling and political concerns around tech platforms have increased. The conversation around technology should not only be technical but political too. The report argues this would allow civil society to become more integrated into the decision-making processes around the adoption of new technologies.
