Digital Trust in Denmark – A workshop on trust and mistrust towards public institutions in the world’s ‘most digitized country’

December 11, 2019 @ 09:00 - 16:00

This workshop aims to debate the hypothesis that Denmark’s increasing digitalization is facilitated by the citizen’s trust in society and the welfare state.

To discuss this question, the organizers wish to bring together a group of researchers and practitioners across universities, the public and private sectors, media and organizations. The intention is to create an open and lively discussion where a number of different and perhaps contradictory answers to the workshop’s stated hypothesis – that digitalization in Denmark is based on a special relationship of trust between the state and the citizen – will be gathered.

The workshop is organised in cooperation between TiP’s research group Data as Relation, IT University and SODAS – Center for Social Data Science at Copenhagen University.

The event will take place in Danish. The registration is closed.

We have four regular events

  1. The TiP Salon runs weekly during the semester. We convene around constructive engagement with new publications, visitors to the group and work in progress. The meeting is open, and runs at 12:00-13:00 on Wednesdays. Please contact Lara Reime to sign up to the email list.
  2. Shut up and Write runs weekly during the semester. Based on the model promoted by Inger Mewburn, we commit to writing projects on the whiteboard and write in shorter sessions with breaks. For more, see here.
  3. The TiP Invited Speaker Series has been running since 2018, and each year 3-4 invited speakers present their work in a public forum. All welcome.
  4. The TiP Writing Workshop takes place twice a semester, where contributions from all members of TiP are welcome. The purpose of the workshop is to give and receive feedback on ‘in progress’ work. Practically the workshop entails reading all participants’ submission, being a ‘caring opponent’ on one particular text, and participating in constructive debate about the texts.
