In the Data Justice Lab we carry out research that engages with data analytics from a social justice perspective. This includes research that examines the implications of institutional and organizational uses of data as well as research that provides critical responses to potential data harms and misuses. Areas of research may include (but are not limited to):

  • Data discrimination
  • Data colonialism
  • Digital labour
  • Prediction and Preemption
  • Data ethics
  • Algorithmic governance
  • Social justice-informed design
  • Uses of data by social justice groups
  • Data-related activism and advocacy
