Challenges for digital public services in the EU

17-18 May 2023


Faculty of Law and Administration, Jagiellonian University

Bracka 12 St.

Larisch Palace

Aim and themes:

The theme of the conference is the implementation and functioning of e-government in Poland and in Europe, with a particular emphasis on the impact of digitalisation on public services, such as: e-transport, e-education, e-health and e-social care. The evolving process of the digitalisation of administration reveals the benefits such as modernisation and advancement in the public services development but it exposes public administration systems to many challenges, such as lack of digital infrastructure, digital literacy, privacy and security concerns, cost, accessibility and change management.

The aim of the JMM Conference will be the exploration of the strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats generated by the process of digitisation of administration providing public services. The themes of the JMM Conference will embrace the issues of legal, economic, social and political conditions of the effective and proper deployment of digital public services in the EU and its member states. The ambition of the Organising Committee is to stimulate and initiate a scientific debate involving academics and practitioners on the question of whether information and communication technologies make European and national public services more accessible, efficient, equitable and responsive to the needs of the community and citizen-oriented.

As the Polish public administration functions in the European administrative space, scientific reflection on the online public services issues in the EU and other European countries, including the countries of the Eastern Partnership and the Western Balkans, is also required. Special attention will be directed towards the integration and interoperability of digital public services across Europe. The analysis of administrative systems other than European, e.g. American, South Korean, will also be appreciated. Such papers will enable a comparative approach to the problem of digitisation of public services.

The conference has an interdisciplinary character including such fields as law, economics, science of administration, management, and health science. The digital public services will be analysed in terms of: current changes and trends in Polish and European administrative law; organization and management in public administration; the concepts, priorities and activities of the public authorities; relations between representatives of public administration and citizens; historical and socio-political conditions of changes in public administration resulting from its digitalisation.


  1. Online public services available to citizens: eID; electronic documents; e-signature; e-taxes; e-invoices, online medical prescriptions; e-voting; e-police; e-healthcare; e-notary; e-census; e-school; digital mail; electronic networks for exchanging medical data with other healthcare providers and specialists; smart cities.
  2. Challenges for public e-services: trust in eGovernment; devolvement of eGovernment in a formalized and institutionalized administrative environment; decrease of privacy (hyper-surveillance); cost; inaccessibility; false sense of transparency and accountability, digital divide, digitalization of public services in a sustainable way, and ethics in the provision of public e-services.
  3. Conditions of the effective deployment of public e-services in the EU and its member states: boosters and inhibitors of eGovernance in the EU; participatory culture and deliberation; modular and adaptable public services, synergies between public and private sectors, equal access to technology, digital data literacy, technologies’ public value, methods to use technology for more efficient policy-making, redesign and new skills for public administration.
  4. How digital is Europe? Mapping digital progress in the field of public e-services on the example of central and local government administration of EU member states, EaP and WB countries. Comparison of European digital public services with theses introduced in in other parts of the world, e.g. in the United States and South Korea.
