Plan/output for this group:
1. Non-white inclusive paper on evidence based policy making and responsible data ethics (for publication?)
2. Shorter briefs / dissemination material in different forms
3. Using, where possible, resources from the work churned out by other groups here on harm stories, success/failure documentation, etc.

Case Study - Responsible Data Policy

In the responsible data community, we are often stymied by a lack of universal language, standards, best practices and competing national and international frameworks. The lack of a unified voice makes policy interventions by or on behalf of subjects of data gathering challenging. Thus, clear guidelines are needed to provide timely and effective policy guidance on data collection, analysis, storage, presentation, use and reuse, while respecting the values of transparency and openness.

Advocacy research shows six points of influence:

           1. When the problem is put on the government agenda
           2. In the development strategic policy options
           3. Option Selection
           4. Implementation
           5. Existing Policy Reform/Recalibration 
           6. Evaluation

Food for thought

  • concepts, problems
  • questions to ask frequently
  • preventions: what do you actually do in concrete terms to prevent these things from happening
  • reactions: responsible responses for when things go wrong
