Weizenbaum Report 2023

The year 2022 opened up significantly more opportunities for citizens to get involved in politics again with the lifting of most COVID infection protection measures, after the previous two years had been characterized by far-reaching restrictions on public life. In addition, global political events such as Russia's attack on Ukraine and the protests against the authoritarian regime in Iran had a mobilizing effect on the German population, which is reflected in an increase in the number of demonstrations compared to the previous year.

Annual Report 2021/2022

September 2022 was an important turning point for our still young Weizenbaum Institute: after the five-year start-up phase, we entered the establishment phase in the fall. This makes it an appropriate time to take stock, which we want to do in this annual report: What have we achieved? What path are we taking to turn the "Weizenbaum Institute" project into an independent research institution?

Shaping Digital Transformation for a Sustainable Society. Contributions from Bits & Bäume

By combining our political demands set by all 13 Bits & Bäume hosting organisations with the diferent perspectives of our more than 65 authors, we want to demonstrate that a different digitalisation is feasible. To help the discourse transcend national boundaries, we have made this journal accessible to a broad audience by publishing it free, digitally and in English. We hope that this publication ofers you fresh perspectives, illuminates new pathways and inspires you to get or stay actively involved in the Bits & Bäume movement.
