First, will the new technologies (‘smart’ homes and cities, new forms of mobility, communication, and social control, and so on) weaken or strengthen the infrastructural power of the state? Will state power have to retreat in social coordination and regulation, or will we see a renaissance of public control of infrastructure sectors? This will be no mere problem-solving adaptation, but a power-based conflictual process. In this respect, the second question is important: How are these possible shifts reflected in changing patterns of policy-making? Will networked policy processes undermine or reinforce traditional structures involving conventional political and social actors in politics and policy-making, or will new ones emerge? Is the state becoming more dependent on the private sector, for example in the regulation of social media using forms of private governance?</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-07-01T09:38:19Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2020-07-01T09:38:19Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>The politics of digital age governance</dcterms:title> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Schneider, Volker</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Schneider, Volker</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
