Digital Policy Laboratory

STEaPP’s Digital Policy Lab works collaboratively across disciplines and with the policy community to develop responses to the challenges and opportunities of emerging technologies.

Digital Policy Laboratory

New and emerging digital technologies are reshaping the ways that we interact, work, and govern. They have profound implications for the promotion of justice and equity, for economic growth, for the provision of public goods, and for international affairs and security. Due to the pace of change as well as the scale and scope of these transformations, the formulation of policies that effectively address these issues is particularly difficult. In order to support sound policy solutions in this context, the Digital Policy Lab works closely with the national and international policy community to understand their goals and challenges and to develop research projects that provide solutions.

We have a number of projects underway in STEaPP that have been co-designed with policy makers. These are typically oriented around specific research questions that have been developed collaboratively – with real attention to the specific needs of those who work to design and implement innovative policy approaches to the deeply challenging problems as well as the unprecedented opportunities brought about by technological change.
