Accountability in times of digital governance: towards a global citizen charter

This session will examine various issues surrounding citizen rights and digital governance. It will discuss issues such as datafication, algorithmic decision making and the implications for marginalized groups, access deficits in realizing full participation, the influx of private actors and platforms in state functions and the accountability sought from them, and exclusions in digitized public service delivery, particularly in welfare. The workshop is designed as a participatory, outcome oriented exercise which will hopefully lead to a ‘global citizen charter for digital governance’.
