Event: Data Rights - Subjects or Citizens?

On 11 November, the Mile End Institute (Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL)) is hosting an event that will discuss how the exponential accumulation of data from everyday online and offline activities raises tensions about who has the rights to produce and own such data. A panel will feature three speakers from a recently published book edited by Didier Bigo, Engin Isin, and Evelyn Ruppert (Editor, BD&S): Data Politics: Worlds, Subjects, Rights (2019). Engin Isin (QMUL) will chair the panel with Elspeth Guild (QMUL), Jennifer Gabrys (Cambridge; Co-editor, BD&S) and Didier Bigo (Sciences Po and KCL) speaking about their contributions.
