About Us

This is epicenter.works – for digital rights


Civil society is the immune system of democracy. We stand for political participation, a society with equitable participation and a strong democracy in the digital age.

Our Vision

What We Do

We defend our fundamental rights and freedoms in the digital age. As governments continue to demand new surveillance measures, more and more data is collected about us, or corporations increase their profits at our expense, we start campaigns, write analyzes, or seek our rights in court.


epicenter.works has a long history. On our history page you will find an overview of our activities – from the first days until today.

Our Testimonials


For the first five years, epicenter.works was run solely by volunteers. To this day, this voluntary involvement is very important to us. In the longer term, many of the volunteers become full members of the association, who elect the board and form the association’s democratic corrective.

The elected board in turn appoints and controls the management, which manages the association’s employees. This is where the close cooperation between employees and volunteers comes full circle.
