Analysing the Impact of Data in Development via a Data Justice Framework


New research from Manchester’s Centre for Development Informatics has just been published in the open-access paper, “Datafication, Development and Marginalised Urban Communities: An Applied Data Justice Framework”.

Addressing the growing role of data in international development, a summary blog of the paper describes the five dimensions of data justice that are integrated into a single analytical framework.  This is then applied to pro-equity data projects in four cities that aim to reduce the current data invisibility of slum communities and other marginalised groups.  Results show particularly how datafication is impacting inequality in developing countries.
