Abstract:The European Commission is increasingly introducing digitalisation policies in the European Union according to its digital strategy. This research aims to provide a critical analysis of these digitalisation policies’ alignment with their respective digital strategy objectives. It is crucial to analyse the alignment of these digitalisation policies because of the high level of societal impact and the position of the European Union in the global digital landscape. First, some past and future policies are analysed for their alignment with strategy. Secondly, the efficiency of implementing selected policies in low-DESI (Digital Economy and Society Index) member states compared to high-DESI member states is analysed using case studies. Findings show that alignment between policies and their respective strategic objectives is high, because of the use of multiple policies to satisfy the overall objective. There seems to be no evidence of a difference in implementation efficiency between low- and high-DESI member states. Finally, the paper provides a conclusion and recommendations for further work.
