Sonderheft Digitale Demokratie

Digitale Demokratie ist das Thema aktuellen Ausgabe Aus Politik und Zeitgeschichte:

„Anlässe, über die Rolle und die Gestaltung des Raumes Interet nachzudenken, gab es in den vergangenen Jahren zuhauf: die Debatte um die Einführung von „Internetsperren“ zur Bekämpung von Kinderpornografie, die Veröffentlichung von vertraulichen Botschaftsdepeschen durch Wikileaks, die „kollaboratie Plagiatsdokumentation“ zur Dissertation Karl-Theodor zu Guttenbergs oder jüngst der massive Protest zahlreicher Online-Plattformen gegen die geplante Antipirateriegesetzgebung in den USA. Den damit verbundenen Fragen – häufig zugespitzt auf den vermeintlichen Gegensatz „Freiheit oder Sicherheit“ – wird zunehmende Priorität eingeräumt, wie auch die Einrichung der Enquête-Kommission „Internet und digitale Gesellschaft“ des Deutschen Bundestages zeigt.“
