Discussion paper on digital self-determination

This discussion paper provides an introduction to the Swiss Digital Self-Determination Network initiative. It was drafted by a working group comprising representatives of the Federal Administration, research and business. The aim of this paper is to make the concept of digital self-determination accessible to a wide readership and present ideas for its further implementation.

A general description in the introduction is followed by details on the relevance of digital self-determination. The basic principles, legal aspects and the establishment of trusted data spaces are then presented as key components of digital self-determination. The three annexes contain fictitious use cases from the mobility, education and energy sectors.
