Implications of Digitisation for the Public Sector

Digital change affects the public sector in many ways. From a macroeconomic perspective, it can increase the public sector's room for manoeuvre if it generates additional growth. From a structural perspective, the extent and nature of the digitisation-related effects cannot yet be foreseen in many areas. In any case, the use of digital technologies is very likely to have significant effects on the public sector, so that an in-depth theoretical and empirical examination of this complex issue is urgently needed.
