The authors are each experienced scholars who have produced a set of carefully integrated and clearly written chapters that cover a vast expanse of themes, from capitalism to citizenship, from social movements to social justice.
Data Justice will be the foundational text for studies on the intersection of data and social justice. Drawing on their own pioneering research and an extensive engagement with the literature, the book provides a comprehensive account of data politics and power, introducing the reader to key emerging ideas and debates. Essential reading for understanding our increasingly datafied world.
Data Justice is an essential handbook for those invested in reclaiming our digital space and reshaping data systems to align with future-oriented values of equity and sustainability. Authored by key thought leaders, this book maps a global and holistic approach to the world of data that works for radical wellbeing.
Examining datafication – a uniquely contemporary human experience – as a site of politics, power and emancipation, Data Justice unravels the multiple and mutual entanglements of ideas of justice and idiosyncrasies of data. A contribution that is bound to animate conversations in public discourse and classrooms alike, Data Justice is an elegant addition to the body of work that helps us understand how sense-making and claims-making are connected in a world redefined by data.
