IEET is seeking technoprogressive policy essays and white papers


Posted: Aug 9, 2013

The IEET would like to collaborate with active members of our community in writing technoprogressive policy documents to be included in the Technoprogressive Policy Wiki, as well as longer technoprogressive white papers.

The Technoprogressive Policy Wiki is divided into three sections:

1. TechnoCitizenship and Science Policy
2. Expanding and Deepening the Rights of the Person
3. Protecting Global Peace Democracy and Security

with dozens of policy statements that need to be written in each section.

The rubric for a policy statement is:

A. (600-1200 words) Set up of the problem. Why the constituency or policy area needs to take account of accelerating technological change, and the need to strengthen democratic policy responses in that domain.

B. (600-1200 words) Discussion and links to political, legislative or regulatory initiatives that we consider a technoprogressive approach to that area.  We have to be careful not to say “vote for this” but we can say “This is a technoprogressive policy or idea.”

C. (600 words) Annotated links to the key essays, books, legal cases, and organizations that suggest the technoprogressive approach for that constituency or policy domain.

The documents in the policy wiki will note the original writer’s contribution, although the document is subject to amendation. White papers will be published as a PDF with the author’s byline, and permanently posted as an IEET Publication.

White papers are longer documents, in the 3000-5000 word range, although they will have the same structure and could start as policy statements.  We are particularly looking for white papers on the following topics:

1) Promoting the Longevity Dividend (why anti-aging medicine will be good for societies fiscally).

2) What is the best strategy for building a society more resilient to catastrophic risks?

3) What are the dumbest technophobic tropes in popular culture that creators, critics and consumers should be flagging as tired?

4) What are the political challenges of changing our rights ideas to incorporate animals (and enhanced animals and machines with personhood)?

5) How can we build strategic technoprogressive projects and alliances with feminists, the disabled, seniors, LGBT, etc.

If anyone in our community wants to write and submit a policy statement in the 1800-3000 word range, or a white paper in the 3000-5000 word range, in accessible language, with numerous bullet points, links for further research, and organizations for readers to look up, please contact Dr. James Hughes at Director@ieet.org.
