Digitalising government services
The many crises our world has faced in recent years only make it more urgent to build societies based on the rule of law. In the economic sphere, it is crucial to strengthen investors’ confidence that they can conduct their activities in a safe and predictable environment. The trend towards digitalisation of government services is an essential step in that direction. That process was accelerated by practical considerations linked to the pandemic. When social contacts are limited, citizens must be able to continue interacting with government structures through digital tools. The work of the Legal Transition Programme
actively promotes policies and regulations for the digitalisation of government services.
Besides its digital focus, this issue of Law in Transition also touches on another priority of our Strategic and Capital Framework 2021-2025
: the green agenda. More than ever, there is a need to strengthen legislative and policy frameworks in the economies where we work to help them weather the current crisis and those yet to come.
