Description

This edited collection features 20 chapters by academics, researchers, consultants, scientists and commentators from a range of disciplines and geographic areas. 

Moving away from the strong body of critique of pervasive ‘bad data’ practices by both governments and private actors in the globalized digital economy, this book aims to paint an alternative, more optimistic but still pragmatic picture of the datafied future. The authors examine and propose ‘good data’ practices, values and principles from an interdisciplinary, international perspective. From ideas of data sovereignty and justice, to manifestos for change and calls for activism, this collection opens a multifaceted conversation on the kinds of futures we want to see, and presents concrete steps on how we can start realizing good data in practice.

Themes include:

  • Good data manifestos and practices
  • Justice
  • Open and shared data
  • Activism and research
  • Smart cities and homes.
