BUREAUCRAZY

Description:
Bureaucrazy is a web-based service and mobile application, inspired by the wish to relieve the stress of refugees and migrants by saving money for both newcomers and the official offices. Bureaucrazy! is on a mission to simplify German bureaucracy not just for the 1.2 million people who have sought asylum there since 2013 but also for ordinary Germans. Since March 2016, a team of six Syrian refugees have been working on Bureaucrazy, which promises to guide newcomers and natives through the labyrinth of form filling and officialese. The app has been developed at ReDi, a Berlin non-profit “school for digital integration” that teaches asylum seekers how to code. Bureaucrazy aims to combine three basic functions: a translation service that renders German official documents into Arabic and English, a multiple-choice decision tree for frequently encountered problems, and a mapping service that sends applicants to the right council office.
