Anita Gurumurthy has been invited to take part in a working session discussing ‘How can data justice be realised practically?’ at Internet Governance Forum 2022. The session will be conducted on 2 December at 4.15 PM IST.

This roundtable will form part of an ongoing research-to-policy influence process which is mapping out and developing new understandings on how to action data justice. The expected outcomes include but are not limited to:

  1. identify participatory practices which can influence data governance
  2. learn from participants and speakers of the collective decision-making data governance examples, as well as the challenges faced
  3. promote and advocate for an approach (among experts, practitioners and policymakers) to data governance which centers both collective economic rights around data while advancing socio-cultural rights of data dependents
  4. build a community of experts to action data justice in their respective sectors/industries/policy areas.

Besides Anita, civil society members Birhane Abeba and Jeni Tennison will take part in the roundtable. The session will be moderated by Alison Gillwald and Shilongo Kristophina.
