Activities

The Institute appeared in March 2020 as a bugreport. We decided to bring together our resources and build a temporary institution that can address, engage in and resist the disruptive and inequitable impact of complex global technology regimes and infrastructures. Find work-in-progress on our wiki; for a quick overview of the activities of the Institute so far, please see below.
