The project focuses on media practices in Marocco and analyzes the emergence of a civil society and the constitution of new public spheres during ongoing processes of social transformation in North Africa. The rapid spread of digital media in the Arab world led to new demands for political participation and has challenged hegemonic power structures since. In this context, socio-informatic research and design zoom in on media infrastructures while media-ethnological research investigates how new media practices (re-)establish issues of concern shaping and re-shaping different public realms. The integrated research perspective analyzes the relationship between civil society, co-operatively constituted publics and their media infrastructures in situ.

The book is an exploration of the theoretical, conceptual and methodological foundations of human-centred design. Specifically, it critically examines the notion of 'practice' and argues for an understanding of the concept which emanates from engagement with design problems rather than simply from social scientific theory. The contributors to the book in their various ways all subscribe to a systematic account of how practice-oriented studies can inform design.
