What we do

Analyze and produce best practices to prevent Big Tech regulatory capture

Research and develop public awareness campaigns about the dangers of surveillance capitalism

Educate about the effects of the adoption of the internet, digital platforms, and other technologies

Tackle asymmetric access to information to strengthen regulatory frameworks

Identify problematically regulated spaces using input from communities through qualitative and quantitative research

Build capacities and expertise within legislators and regulators to recognize the dangers of poorly regulated digital economies



Strengthen Latin American democracies by inspiring fair and legitimate technology regulation processes

We envision technology adoption as a process that empowers communities and underrepresented groups. We visualize digital platforms regulated to promote democracy.
