In the winter of 2013, I – more or less accidentally – ended up at the Chaos Communication Congress. It was shortly after the first publications of the Snowden documents and therefore an eventful time in the debate on Internet freedom and privacy. During this time I have learned quite a lot about the importance of digital human rights for our society and the necessity to protect these rights.

The fact that I was about to start writing my master’s thesis turned out to be the perfect reason to share academic knowledge on privacy and the movement of activists concerned with this topic. In Meeting the Privacy Movement. Dissent in the Digital Age I have painted a picture of the privacy movement as I encountered it from 2013 to 2015.

Nowadays, I still very much enjoy writing about the privacy movement.
