Many of you have reacted to our invitation and sent us a consumer policy wish list for 2018. We have collected and analyzed your wishes and put them in a wordcloud.
The results show that in addition to the general wish to empower consumers, one pressing specific enforcement wish is to improve collective action (class action). Furthermore, there is a wide range of other issues, ranging from affordable housing, to improvements for privacy and sustainable consumption and fair textiles. This overviews once more confirms that consumer policy represents a horizontal policy field with links to many national and global pressing issues starting with social inclusion to justice and climate protection.
At this point, we would like to thank you for the extensive participation and the high response rate. Furthermore, we deeply hope you got off to a good start in 2018 and that we can together turn the upcoming year into a success for consumer policy.
Yours sincerely, Your ConPolicy-Team!
