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. It's been a long journey for us, too: We started out out with a cozy gathering of just 700 bloggers in 2007 – back then we still addressed each other by our Twitter handles.


It's time! Tonight we are having our warmup party – and tomorrow it is already re:publica Dublin! To prevent you from getting lost in Dublin, this is what you need to know about the venues and the schedule of the event in one glimpse.


What would it be like if Twitter users owned the social platform themselves, or even managed it? The discussion panel on platform cooperatives on the net at re:publica Dublin this Thursday promises to be exciting.


In our three-part series, our media partner euro | topics examines some of the issues relevant to Ireland – and to Europe as a whole. The third and last part is about the question whether social media corporations should cooperate with security agencies in the fight against terrorism, and to which extent.


Another highlight at re:publica Dublin this Thursday, hosted in cooperation with our partner, Goethe-Institut Ireland, and the NGO Digital Rights Ireland: “Privacy and Data Protection in the Digital Age” addresses the role of digital technologies in undermining human rights.


At re:publica TEN, some of “Die Bösen Wölfe” (Bad Wolves) were already in action: Three camera teams, made up of ten kids and teens equipped with microphones and cameras and guided by adults, were on the go, reporting and conducting video interviews throughout the event. Read some of the kids' personal accounts here.


In our three-part series, our media partner euro | topics examines some of the issues relevant to Ireland – and to Europe as a whole. Part two focuses on the implications of Brexit for the digital economy in the UK and Europe.


Nearly time! Next week, we are organizing re:publica Dublin! Have a look at the venues, and check out our update on the schedule of the event here.


The vision of a decentralized web collides with the legal structures of today. But whose problem is that, and who is in charge of creating an interface between these forces? These questions are a pressing matter for #rpDUB speaker Shermin Voshmgir, and a central aspect of her upcoming talk.


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.


In a new, three-part series, our partner eurotopics will illuminate some of the topics most relevant to Ireland – and to Europe as a whole. Part one is about the tax issues Apple is currently facing in Ireland.


We are looking to fill internship positions starting in December 2016 and in January/February 2017. As a member of a dedicated team you will gain plenty of insights and experience in organising large-scale projects.
