Advancing Data Justice Research and Practice in Uganda
Many years ago, existing approaches to data ethics and governance focused on issues about the social impacts of datafication and the increasing consequences of the use of data intensive technologies in terms of data protection, individual rights, privacy efficiency, and security.1
The game changers also tended to frame solutions towards mitigating the harms that datafication brings about rather than investigating the social structures, human choices and socio-technical practices that come as a result of the increasing use of data in society. This policy brief presents the critical policy alternatives and recommendations for advancing data justice research and practice in Uganda. The brief was a product of a research report produced by WOUGNET entitled “Advancing Data Justice Research and Practice (ADJRP) in Uganda”.
The study was conducted between November 2021 to March 2022 with an aim of addressing the need for a multidimensional broadening of data justice and the undertaking of data justice practice along the ADJRP provisional six pillars namely power, equity, access, identity, participation, and knowledge.
