The controversial topic we work on was the surrogacy practice.
Surrogacy is an arrangement in which a woman carries and delivers a child for another couple or person. Even if a lot of people don’t know about this practice, after a first step of methodic web research we discovered that the topic was trending and  generating many discussions throughout the web.
A biggest subtopic emerged from this preliminary research: surrogacy tourism in India. And this is what we decided to focus on. “How different countries look at surrogacy tourism in India?” We started from this question to develop our research, looking at four different domains: .com (golbal/USA), .co.in (India), .co.uk (United Kingdom), .it (Italy). The choice was related with the different law regulations of those countries.

The research process was based on the Digital Methods. All the data used for the analysis was taken from the web by the team, studied, refined and then visualized. 
The deep analysis performed with the report let us understand which and how many opinions are available in different countries about surrogacy in India and underlined many interesting aspects of the controversy, like the role of the media and the legal development of the practice, as well as a big debate about indian surrogate mothers’ condition, that led us to the last project that can be seen below.
