The Atelier has been split into five ‘specialisations’, each focussing on a particular country in which the link between (digital) democracy and populism is especially salient. They are:
- The United Kingdom (groups 1 and 5);
- Turkey (group 2);
- Brazil (group 3), and
- The United States (group 4)
For an optimal experience, the essays can best be viewed on a computer.
