Finding our footing in new territory.

As an Institute that blends the theoretical with the practical, we start our work in each city by creating an informational overview of the new territory that we’re working in. As newcomers to each city, we believe it’s important to come prepared to ask the right questions and be surprised by what we don’t yet know.

Our research unfolds in two consecutive steps. First, our team performs a comprehensive literature review and conducts interviews with stakeholders to better understand the general trends in security, digitalization, and urban processes that are present in each city. Then, we repeat this process in a more focused and refined manner during our research sprint and data workshops, where we work with young adults from each city on complex questions related to digitalization, surveillance, and governance.
