The Repair Research Network was founded by a group of activists and researchers during the 2017 Fixfest conference, organised by The Restart Project. We share an interest in how changes to policy might increase the repair of consumer goods.
We decided to put together a bilbiography of research on repair. This aims to:
1. Help activists and researchers improve our own research projects or activist campaigns by providing information about research outputs across disciplines and organizations
2. Provide a snapshot of the priorities and “gaps” in repair research that can be used to craft a shared research agenda. We are particularly interested in how research might generate “evidence” for policy change that promotes repair activities and repairable designs.
The bibliography is managed by Dr. Lara Houston. Find out how to access the bibliography here. We need your help to maintain and extend it. Please see our page on how to contribute to the bibliography.
