Towards Data Justice? Reframing the Datafication Debate

Fri, May 25, 11:00 to 12:15, Hilton Prague, Floor: M, Karlin III


The datafication of social life leads to an urgent need to broaden the parameters for how data collection and analysis have been understood so far, and for an integrated understanding of data as a social justice issue. This will be essential for addressing data as a (new) form of governance that advances particular social, economic and political agendas benefitting some and disadvantaging others. The framework of data justice offers a way of shifting debate and action in terms of both the conditions of practising resistance and the social and economic (in)justices that penetrate and are contingent upon this form of governance. It recognises the social and economic structures of datafication while drawing attention to the political agenda that is driving its implementation. Based on the ERC-funded project DATAJUSTICE, this paper will outline the conceptual foundations of a data justice approach.
