Internet users have to face complex challenges in digital societies if they want to protect their privacy. The articles in this special issue discuss various aspects of these challenges, focusing on the political dimension of these challenges, privacy and its protection. Based on the combination of the articles, the editors develop the concept of the "politics of privacy" in the foreword.

Möller (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz), Prof. Dr. Jakub Nowak (Maria Curie-Skłodowska University Lublin), Prof. Dr. Sigrid Kannengießer (University Bremen) and Prof. Dr. Judith E.
