Abstract

Internet is often said to disrupt the political sphere. Hence, the emergence of cyberparties is supposed to renew the forms and aims of political party membership. Based on a qualitative analysis of the Belgian Pirate Party, this article scrutinizes the role that Internet plays in the engagement process within a cyberparty. Two types of activist are identified: the technical and the relational activists. They differ in terms of their attitudes toward politics, their conceptions of Internet and their types of engagement inside the party. Overall, the broader relationship that Internet develops with political engagement is questioned.
