Abstract

Can an adversarial design approach help to foster public political actions in the refugee crises? How can policy makers by means of adversarial design be supported in mapping out the conflicting visions of all stakeholders involved and how is this helpful in the decision making process?During this conversation we will explore the role of design for mapping out conflicting ideas and opinions around the refugee crisis. Following the agonistic philosophy of Belgian political theorist Chantal Mouffe we will encourage contestation and dare our participants to relate to one another as adversaries, explore what they disagree on, instead of looking for their common interest.
