The extent of digitalization and the use of digital tools no longer need to be demonstrated. While companies have been integrating the challenges of such a transformation for more than 20 years, the public sector is lagging behind.

Digital Transformation and Public Policies studies the mechanisms of the digital transformation of public organizations. It explores how this new deal, driven mainly by platforms, resonates with new public policies and how digital technology is redrawing the relationship between the governors and the governed.

This book, the result of transdisciplinary collaboration between researchers, aims to answer these questions by focusing on several cases: public innovation policies, health data and social policies with fiscal microsimulation devices.


1. From Crowdsourcing to Inclusiveness: The European Experience of Innovation Contests, Isabelle Liotard and Valérie Revest.

3. Access Policies to Digital Resources of Administration through the Lens of Microsimulation, Franck Bessis and Paul Cotton.
