About The Polis Project

The Polis Project, Inc
 is a hybrid research and journalism organization producing knowledge about some of the most important issues affecting us, by amplifying diverse perspectives from those indigenous to the conflicts and crises affecting our world today.


Research. Reportage. Resistance.

We democratise scholarship, produce in-depth, critical journalism and knowledge for and by communities in resistance.

We make sense of the world with its infinite injustices, inequality and violence, with the courage to reveal how existing systems, ideas, ideologies and laws have failed us.

We compress complexity by understanding that knowledge is power, and like all power, it shouldn’t be owned by a few people or corporations.

We pursue this by adapting our storytelling, analysis and research to the newest, most innovative ways of spreading our work to the most engaged audiences possible.


Diversity: We amplify voices that are unique, critical, remarkable and underrepresented.

Form Agnostic: We deliver in the forms and platforms where our audiences live.

Integrity: We maintain the highest standards of professionalism, honesty and fairness. We speak truth to power, we nurture critical voice of dissent.

We create advertisement free knowledge!
