Advancing Data Justice Research and Practice

This project expands upon a research programme on Data Governance, managed by the Global Partnership on AI (“GPAI”). GPAI’s Data Governance Working Group selected two projects as part of GPAI’s first work plan including “Advancing data justice research and practice”.

Without rights-preserving frameworks for the governance of data, AI’s potential to tackle some of the most intractable problems of our time such as climate change and the global pandemic will be overshadowed by its potential to introduce harms and exacerbate inequalities. It is already evident that the distribution of benefits and harms is uneven between countries and those individuals and communities marginalised within them.

The purpose of this project is to fill a gap in data justice research and practice, providing a frame to help practitioners and users to move beyond understanding data governance narrowly, as a compliance matter of individualised privacy or ethical design, to include considerations of equity and justice in terms of access to, and visibility and representation in, data used in the development of AI/ML systems.The ADJRP team intends to ground this work in consultations with impacted stakeholders on what matters to them and in their areas of greatest concern and hope.
