Special issue — Data-driven models of governance across borders
This special issue, edited by Payal Arora and Hallam Stevens, examines contemporary data systems in diverse global contexts, highlighting struggles encountered in negotiating efficiency and innovation with universal human rights and social inclusion. These studies presented in these essays are situated in diverse models of policy-making, governance, and activism across borders. Attention to big data governance in Western contexts has tended to highlight how data increases state and corporate surveillance of citizens, affecting rights to privacy. By moving beyond Euro-American borders — to places such as Africa, India, China, and Singapore — these papers illustrate how data regimes are motivated and understood on very different terms.
