A borderless society 2025

Digitalization is the single biggest driver of change in our time. It impacts our whole society. Whilst dealing with today’s challenges, governments need to discuss what form tomorrow’s may take and how we can prepare for them.

The Swedish government’s goal is for e-identification to be simple and secure for users, as well as simple, predictable and cost-effective for the public sector. The development and use of e-identification for identification and signing are critical for society to provide efficient and successful digital services. The identification and signing procedures when using digital services should work securely and simply for the user, irrespective of whether they are in Sweden or abroad.

This ideas paper on e-identification sets its sights on the year 2025 - far enough away to disconnect from today’s needs and solutions, yet close enough to find signs of potential developments.
