Food for thought on solidarity in the digital age


How does digitalisation affect solidarity? The Sanitas health insurance foundation presents studies and offers experts and think tanks a platform for debate.

Digitalisation is affecting more and more areas of our life: the insurance industry, healthcare, the working world and society as a whole. How does digitalisation affect solidarity? Is it likely to strengthen or erode solidarity communities? A number of authors highlight different aspects in articles, interviews, videos and graphics.
