The digitalization of various spheres of social, economic, and political life may bring many benefits, including easier access to public services; new forms of involving citizens, especially young people, in public affairs and building civil society; or the development of knowledge-based society and economy.
Unfortunately, digitalization can also have negative effects, including increasing existing or creating new forms of social inequality, exposing citizens to the loss of privacy and cybercrime, or using precise social engineering tools that can massively influence the economic or political decisions of citizens.
