Who we are
netzpolitik.org is a medium concerned with digital rights and freedoms. Most of our work is published in German, but occasionally translated into English. We address issues at the intersection of Internet, society and politics, and show ways in which people can be empowered to advocate for digital rights themselves. We describe how politics is changing the Internet through regulation and how the Internet is changing politics, public sphere, and everything else.
We critically accompany all areas of society in which a process of digitalization is taking place, from big data corporations and state security agencies, to education, media and environment. We aim to put technological change in the service of freedom, solidarity and the common good. We see ourselves as a journalistic website, but we are not neutral. Our stance is: We are committed to digital freedom rights and their political implementation.
Our work has been distinguished with numerous awards.
