Welcome to Discourse

Welcome to the Coalition for Independent Tech Research Discourse!

Our mission is to advance, defend, and sustain the right to ethically study the impact of technology on society.

We are academics, journalists, civil society researchers, and community scientists who work independently from the technology industry.

We value research that is responsible, ethical, transparent, privacy-respecting, and rigorous. We are committed to supporting research by individuals as diverse as the societies we share. We are also committed to making our findings freely available, especially to the people most affected by the phenomena we study.
