Working in teams, network members will produce both foundational conceptual papers and practical policy guidance for the research topics taken up. Conceptual papers will be published quickly in white paper form, and also in scholarly journals. Policy guidance will be crafted for specific stakeholder partners, who will be engaged in the work from agenda design through to completed deliverable.
Running alongside the whitepaper + policy brief work stream, we will run a series of workshops that seek to tackle the constitutional-level implications of tech innovation for U.S. democracy as well as for global regulators and develop a roadmap to guide mastery of the implications of technology across the multiple policy domains of U.S. governance structures.
