The Estonian EU presidency has recently come to an end. Estonia profiles itself as a digital society (there were as many digital signatures made in Estonia in 2016 as in the whole rest of the EU!) and both Estonian and foreign observers looked to the EU presidency as a chance to push for a more digital Europe. How did Estonia succeed? Are data protection concerns legitimate reasons for going slow on introduction of more e-governance? Why can Estonia do it and not others? These are the issues to be discussed at the seminar.
