    Bio:  Irina Papazu is an Associate Professor in the Technologies in Practice Research Group at the Department of Business IT at the IT-University in Copenhagen. She is a part of the Center for Digital Welfare, where she heads the Agile State working group. Her work focuses on the digital transformation of the state and how public digitalization transforms state institutions and the relations between citizens and state.     Title of presentation: The new spatialities of the digital welfare state   Abstract of presentation:  As one of the world’s most digitalized countries, public digitalization has changed the Danish state’s spatiality leading to new mechanisms of exclusion. For most citizens, digitalization has brought the public sector and its services closer than ever. But with the state gradually eliminating the analogue entry points to its services, there are citizens who are left behind.

      Digital technologies for the interaction between public sector authorities and citizens are mostly designed with an individual, self-serving user in mind. But what does the reality for the user actually look like, and what means do they take in use to successfully go about their business with the state. In going beyond the self-serving citizen as a design persona, the session brings nuances to what is actually needed for technologies to be socially inclusive. Companies will be interested in evidence presented for why digital inclusion is the next big thing.
