Abstract

Data increasingly regulates our lives. We are assessed, ranked, profiled and categorized according to data that is collected about us. These assessments enable - or limit - our access to services and our ability to cross borders; they define us as potential 'risk'; and they affect core aspects of citizenship. New publics are created and receive differential treatment based on data analysis. Yet while data regulates society, the regulation of data is becoming a pressing concern. Policies are required for for data collection, sharing and analysis, and struggles over policy development have picked up, not least, since the Snowden revelations. This panel will address both the role of big data 'as' governance and the governance 'of' big data.
