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.


This month on DataSyn we bring a series of short pieces designed to contextualize and reflect on the digital trade landscape against the backdrop of WTO MC13. Our first piece takes a critical look at the US’ dramatic reversal of its stance on key issues, probing into the motivations and consequences of this development. Our second piece ties the historical conflicts around digital trade to the cutting-edge issues around AI regulation. Finally, our third piece takes a step back, providing a helpful overview of the neo-colonial tendencies that have plagued the digital trade arena in recent years.


Engage with our diverse thematic tracks examining various facets of our digital world. We explore labor issues in the digital economy, provide critiques of corporate excess and surveillance capitalism, examine feminist issues in the online sphere, investigate developments in AI and tech policy, and much more.
