This roundtable intends to discuss the future of public policy education in light of the increasing digitalisation of governance tools and of society in general. The great acceleration of digitalisation as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, but also of the shift towards a new vision of society and the economy, particularly in terms of decarbonization and effort to fight the ongoing global environmental crisis, point to a future where new competencies and skills will be required to successfully operate as a public policy specialist.
