European citizens are interested in developments in the implementation of digital technology solutions, with a view to simplifying the necessary administrative procedures in relation to the authorities or in everyday life in society. A digitally literate population can benefit, through digital identity, from simplified access to the services provided by public authorities or the business environment.

The advantages of digitalisation are obvious, but the rapid implementation of digital systems, and making citizens' access to some services of general interest conditional on having a digital identity, could in practice lead to a significant number of European citizens being denied the right to access these services.

In 2021, the Belarusian regime led by Alyaksandr Lukashenka actively attracted migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and other countries, encouraging and even forcing them to cross the UE borders. This resulted in a particular pressure on Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, and was done in retaliation against the sanctions adopted by the EU in response to the regime rigging the national elections in 2020 and violently repressing civil society in 2021.

This opinion will look into how digital sovereignty is critical for the EU to reach digital targets and could be a game changer in the single market. Digital sovereignty would help boost the EU's potential strengths and address strategic weaknesses in the tech sphere. It would also widen the use of open markets and supply chains to avoid an over-reliance on proprietary systems.
