In collaboration with Hannes Kühn and Thomas Danken, Sabine Kuhlmann has contributed to a book on public service delivery in the light of digitalization and, associated therewith, our conception of statehood. In their chapter “Digitale Governance im Bundesstaat: föderale Architektur, kommunale Umsetzung und Perspektiven einer neuen Staatskunst” (in: Lühr, Henning (ed.): Digitale Daseinsvorsorge. Bremer Gespräche zur digitalen Staatskunst. Bremen: Kellner Verlag), the three authors examine steering mechanisms with regard to the digital transformation and the state of implementation of digitalization projects such as the Online Access Act (Onlinezugangsgesetz – OZG). The focus of the article is on German municipalities.
