Class Description (IT for Change)

We live in an age where data is the new oil. Our data traces -- digital shadows of ourselves, and the mining and manipulating of such data doubles has         
become the fuel on which the platform economy runs. In the new data regime, many have pointed to the unholy nexus between big business and                 
governments, the rise of what has been termed the 'network-data complex'. The anxiety around this has seen ideas and advocates for plugging                    
 loopholes in existing privacy frameworks, with many rallying around the demand for more effective data protection legislation. But if the governance of         
networked data is to be reduced entirely to privacy, there are many crucial concerns that we lose sight of, such as concerns stemming from an                     
increasing reliance on centralised, algorithmic decision-making by state agencies, and fencing-in/ enclosure of the data commons by big business that        
 restricts public interest re-use of data sets.

    This lecture will push the boundaries of the debate on data governance beyond privacy and surveillance, by teasing out the critical concerns for                     
democracy that the emerging data regime around us is opening up; and highlight lacunae in existing policy frameworks.
