Data justice provides a framework for a comprehensive interrogation of the data-society nexus.

To do so, we propose taking a holistic approach by situating research on data processes in the context of:

  • a) the concrete experiences and practices of particular communities;
  • b) technological analyses of data sources, algorithmic process and data output;
  • c) policy frameworks that relate to the interplay between digital rights and social and economic rights; and
  • d) conceptual engagement with notions of social justice and new stratifications along with epistemological and ontological shifts emerging with datafication.
