European Pirate Parties and the Politics of Communication: Research report on the project Communication rights in the 2014 European Election Campaign

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportProfessional

    Abstract

    This report presents the findings of a research project on communication rights in the Information Society. The project addresses the politics of European Pirate Parties in two parts. The first part of the research analyzes how debates on digital communication rights were represented in Pirate Party campaigns in the European Elections 2014. In the second part, the focus is on how questions of digital communication rights are currently treated in the political programs of five Pirate Parties. Pirate politics aims at policy reforms to strengthen personal privacy protections online from corporate and state surveillance activities but extends also to more broad notions of culture, participation, and self-expression. Despite that the Pirates face many obstacles in getting their message across to electorates they have already made an important contribution to European policy-making concerning digital user rights.
