A little bit about us

Hello and welcome to Bot Populi! We are an alternative media platform dedicated to looking at all things digital from a social justice and Global South perspective. We aim to meaningfully shape the public discourse on digitalization and prompt important conversations about transformative change for a better digital future.

To this end, we explore how the digital world affects different aspects of our lives in obvious and unexpected ways. Our contributors include passionate and committed scholars, activists, and visionaries from around the world working on issues of digital justice.
