University of Tsukuba Pre-Strategic Initiatives Empirical Social Science Research Center
for Policy Solutions to Disparities and Inequalities


[6/17 14:00-] “Digital Technology Creating a New Civil Society” (11th DDPI Seminar)

The DDPI project will continue to organize a seminar series intermittently in FY2022, focusing on policy solutions to disparities and inequalities and the potential of digital technology for such solutions (digital democracy).

This time, entitled “Digital Technology Creating a New Civil Society,” Mr. Kenichiro Fukushima, President of Code for Kanazawa General Incorporated Association and Representative Director of i-Publishing K.K., will talk about the current status and challenges of digitization of administrative services and activities, focusing on local governments, and the outlook for the future.The recent trend to promote administrative digital transformation is remarkable, but there still seems to be a wide scope for thinking about how digital technology can be used to solve policy issues of disparity and inequality that are spreading across diverse sectors of society.In this seminar, Mr. Fukushima, a so-called “civic hacker” who is active in various fields such as IT-based problem solving, business revitalization, and community development, will share his knowledge based on his experience and discuss the future of digital democracy and civil society in a wide range of topics.

We look forward to your participation.
