This chapter discusses the results of the study analysing Repair Cafes, which gave reason to frame the repairing of media technologies as a form of political participation. It examines the research fields on political participation in media and communication studies as well as the field on repairing and public sites of repair are sketched out as both provide relevant insights for the empirical discussion. The chapter argues the basis of the results of the empirical study analysing Repair Cafes that repairing is not only a way of dealing with financial or economic crisis or climate change but that it can also be an act of political participation aimed at the transformation of society. In the coding process, six main categories became obvious regarding the aims of the people involved and why they organise the Repair Cafes or repair media technologies: conservation of resources, waste prevention, appreciation of the apparatus, technical empowerment, having fun repairing things and economic pressure.
