The form of participation is offline.

DTGS is an international collaborative platform for researchers to discuss transformative impact of digital technology on governments and societies across the globe, with a special emphasis on the BRICS countries. The key topic of DTGS-2024 is related to the digital transformation of governance, as well as political communication online.

We welcome multidisciplinary papers that apply approaches from the social sciences and humanities to the research on social and political institutions, practices, human communication and other behavior in cyberspace, as well as offline, if those are directly influenced by the recent digital transformations and are related to governance or political participation.
