How do we understand the perception of security of the residents in Geneva? Edgelands Institute sought to answer this question in its second pop-up location in Geneva. In the spirit of community-based participatory research (CBPR).
In partnership with OPPi, from June 22 to November 15 of 2022, we invited the residents of Geneva to participate in the online participatory survey “What Are the Dangers That Threaten Your Safety in Geneva?”.
We invite you to listen to the podcasts produced by the participants of We are Recoding You Geneva, and to read more about their research.

How should the Swiss Confederation safeguard its values, interests, and you, its residents, in a digital space that is increasingly turning into an economic and geopolitical battleground? This blog post argues that the answer to this question should not be left solely to elected politicians or public officials but rather be the result of an inclusive societal dialogue surrounding the sovereignty of Switzerland in the digital age. To do so, the blog post examines the Swiss Federal Council’s decision to store the federal administration's data on foreign tech companies’ servers, highlights its national security and privacy implications, and draws parallels with the national debate on railroad nationalization in the 19th century.
After three weeks of intense work, the participants of “We Are Recording You Geneva” presented the problematic they will focus on.
We had the first session of the 8-week program "We are Recording you Geneva"!
