Global Public Goods are strongly affected by digitization, either through new Digital Public Goods or through new roles or functions of existing Public Goods. This requires discussion, structuring, and potentially new policy concepts and mechanisms. Beyond this public debate, global platform companies today claim that they now deliver the real Global Public Goods. The downsides of this development and the price to pay for societies are becoming clearer. Digital Humanism is an initiative for human-centred digitization that wants to help transform our existing institutional framework into an even more humanist and integrative digital future. Therefore, it can play a role in the discussion of current and future Global Public Goods.
