The up-to-the-minute library includes millions of political documents from German federal and state parliaments, European institutions and many more - accessible and searchable in one platform.

„Previously, political documents needed to be manually obtained from different sources and had then to be analyzed in a second step. Public affairs professionals have been totally dependent on their personal networks. Expert's advice is still important. But these experts also know they cannot know everything. We can bridge that gap."

Our network

Polit-X has built up an extensive network of partners covering all areas of politics and public affairs. Collaborating with scientific research institutions helped to implement new methods of data processing and subsequently make them accessible to interested stakeholders. Furthermore, Polit-X is used in science-related areas for fact-based evaluations or to support scientists with a comprehensive database of documents. Several collaborations and partnerships were formed with public affairs agencies, associations and publishing houses. Cooperating effectively and transparently with our partners in the field of public affairs and practioners from the world of politics allowed us to combine services such as the integration of political documents with contact information, dates and events and media content. Attending technical conferences and political events on a regular basis, as well as giving presentations and trainings helps us to expand our network and gain critical insights.
