Abstract

The formation of the digital government nowadays belongs to the main directions of reforming public policy and governance. In Russia, the Federal Target Program “Digital Economy” is planned to be implemented with a conjugate transition from electronic to digital government. At the heart of the formation of the digital government is the idea of the state as a platform that allows to effectively implement state functions and services on a new technological basis. The technocratic approach that dominates this idea is accompanied by the conviction that effective public policy and governance is possible almost without a person and public relations. The paper aims to critically analyze the technocratic cultural values of the state as a platform. Adequate answers to the political challenges of the digital government (values of control, centralization, excessive governability, etc.) are possible when integrating a new culture of political opportunities for co-production and the emerging system of state governability through cooperation.
