The Internet policy civil society is producing analysis, monitors, diagnosis, evidence, campaigns and developing a sense of needs and urgence in the public debate. All of this can be trapped in a PDF after months of hard work of research or coalition-building. Impactful research is only impactful if it finds ways to be framed and communicated. At the middle of this process is the relationship between experts and designers.

This session will be a conversation about learnings that emerged from this relationship: InternetLab (a Brazilian Internet policy think tank) and Goma Oficina (a Brazilian design and architecture studio) work together since 2012 developing ways to present policy research in an innovative fashion.

Desired goals of this session include: how Internet policy experts and designers can work together to maximize raising-awareness strategies on digital rights? We want to facilitate a conversation about bridging the gap between academia and communication professionals to foster Internet freedom capacity building.
