17 plus one: the Internet Committee of Enquiry
- Series: netz.macht.kultur
The Internet Committee of Enquiry and Digital Society of the German Bundestag aims at organising the central sociopolitical questions of the digital age.

It seeks to make the smouldering Policy Making Process fit and competent.
