What we do

We study how social trust can inform new models of governance in a networked society. Inspired by ecosystems and their dynamics, our research touches a vast array of inquiries ranging from trust propagation to referral systems, social engagement, community-centric governance, resonant leadership, and social impact.


Why we do what we do

Governance is essentially about how we coordinate each other. In the age of networks, we need a new agile framework for interactions that is inclusive of formal decision-making and of more informal coordination mechanisms, and that can adapt to centralized and to decentralized dynamics.


What we’d like to achieve

We aim to provide social technologies that mimic the way cohesive communities operate and we aim to bring their dynamics to scale. Indeed, it is ‘how’ we are connected to each other that can make a difference for positive collective impact.


Who we are

Meoh is a not-for-profit and informal multidisciplinary group based in Brussels which engages in applied research on social systems.
