«The Dispositif is the apparatus that makes you see and talk» – Gilles Deleuze

What are Dispositif Maps?

A method of visualizing complex social problems, building on the idea of the dispositif by Michel Foucault. Take the actors, institutions and their speeches, put them into a network analysis tool and you get a map where you can get aware of you own position in your political and social terrain.
