Dear colleagues,

the DVPW Working Group Digitalization and Politics is co-organizing an 
international, interdisciplinary academic conference hosted by the 
University of Augsburg (Germany). It is a collaboration between the 
Augsburg University, three working groups of the German Political 
Science Association (DVPW), the Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked 
Society and the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ).

The conference's topic is “Digitalization for sustainability 
transformations – Critical perspectives, lessons learned, and future 
prospects”. We strive to bring together experts from different 
disciplines to share their insights on how digital technologies can 
contribute to creating a more sustainable future.

The conference will take place from 20th September (3pm) to 22nd 
September (1pm) 2023 at Augsburg University in Germany (near Munich). 
The conference addresses two overarching questions:  1. How does 
digitalization transform the knowledge and practices of environmental 
and sustainability policymaking? 2. Which forms of digitalization 
governance are needed to harness its potential for sustainability 

Four keynote speakers have confirmed their participation: Prof. Radhika 
Krishnan, IIIT Hyderabad in India, Dr. Ruth Machen, University of 
Newcastle in Great Britain, Dr. Roy Bendor, Delft University of
