At Delma, we are rethinking how we think about the world.

We innovate through iterative analytical tools, a commitment to interdisciplinarity, and vernacular insight into local contexts.



We have two modes of practice:

  • Advisory

    Modernist, prescriptive, offline

    We work with clients who want to understand how global developments affect their fields of interest, as well as the broader implications their ideas and policies may have on international affairs.

  • Research

    Post-modernist, descriptive, online

    We produce work that attempts to serve as an architecture of networked and hyper-emergent international affairs. Here we are trying to supplant old answers with new questions.

The interplay between the two allows us to monetise our curiosities to explore further curiosities.

We believe character is just as important as talent.
