Layman's description

Networks and connections in society are becoming more intensive, but also shorter, more dependent and more complicated. Knowledge and risks are bundled into multi-dimensional relationships and there is a continuing trend towards globalisation and Europeanisation on a large scale. There is also individualisation; individuals often emphasise their own interests and freedom of choice. There are also interwoven relationships, or connectedness, which is characterised by strong mutual dependencies. These developments do not only affect citizens and businesses. The role and responsibility of government is also changing.
