Out of the DST Innovation Lab 2014 workshop in Hawaii grew a project about instigating social change in tight-knit stakeholder communities. The challenge lies in the difficulties to understand the power structures and dynamics of the communities; identify proper interventions and figuring out how they may function; and anticipate desired and unintended consequences of these interventions. To address this challenge we designed a three-phased plan (baseline, modeling, assessment), relying on an innovative approach inspired by computational methods to policy design and implementation in sensitive contexts.
