Digital Engagement in Politics and Law: Digital Research Case Study 13 2017

Researchers in the Schools of Law and Politics often work in sensitive and challenging research areas which are difficult to engage research participants and members of the public in. You may have come across my blog series on Digital Engagement, which inspired a new digital engagement project.

Jan Meyer-Sahling, Professor of Political Science and Richard Hyde, Associate Professor in Law conduct research on the topics of corruption and whistle blowing in the civil service, and are interested in exploring ways to digitally engage the public in their research.

The Digital Research Team are helping to facilitate a unique collaborative project with the Mixed Reality Lab in Computer Science. The idea is to create a provocative and artistic digital experience to engage the public in legal and political research, and to demonstrate the role of digital dissemination as a research tool.

Below is a list of the blogs which summarise the activities, findings and achievements of this case study:

  1. Horizon scanning for digital engagement technologies in Politics and Law
  2. The role of paper prototyping in digital engagement 
  3. The Corruption Kitchen VR
  4. Developing the corrupt kitchen VR
  5. Corrupt Kitchen VR Dev-Diary
