Our first international event went spectacularly! On 20 October 2016, over 200 participants converged on re:publica Dublin in order to attend sessions on three stages. There's more! The next re:publica Belrin in May 2017 will take place under the motto “Love out Loud”.
We've only just celebrated our tenth anniversary at re:publica TEN, and now it continues – in Ireland! The very first re:publica outside of Germany is taking place today, October 20th, 2016.

What do we do when platforms for radicalization emerge on the Internet? #rpDUB speaker Peter Neumann is on alert. From terrorist recruitment in Europe to prison-based de-radicalization programs, Peter provides an analysis of these fatal processes and most importantly, shares ideas on how to counteract them.
The discourse on digital surveillance and data collection shows the Internet's impact on our everyday life. #rpDUB speaker Rachel O'Dwyer goes further and calls a person's online consumption the electronic reproduction of one's personality.
