The Deliberative Media Lab is a part of UVA’s Democracy Initiative.

The Deliberative Media Lab focuses initially on Brazil and the United States—two major democracies that have experienced cultural and political strife influenced and amplified by social media. The Lab will explore the historical, cultural, and technological roots of our media ecosystem, and seek solutions for enhancing global democratic deliberation.

“The impact of our work will reverberate in the future citizen-leaders we educate, in the innovative research that advances our understanding of the democratic project, and in the public engagement that influences its future prospects through policy.”
