Disrupting democracy

A research on the impact of digital technologies on elections

Beginning January 2017, the Bertelsmann Foundation embarked on a journey to explore how digital innovation impacts democracies and societies around the world.

From the rival capitals of Washington and Havana to the bustling streets of New Delhi; the dynamic tech startups in Tel Aviv to the efficient order of Berlin, Disrupting Democracy focuses on key challenges that have emerged as a result of technological disruption and offers potential lessons to other nations situated at various points along the technological and democratic spectra.

Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini supported the making of the Italian chapter by identifying experts, politicians, technicians, activists and stakeholders throughout Italy and setting up the agenda. FGB was also in charge of the scenario chapter.
