    The “Next-Generation Data Assemblages for Enhanced Citizen Participation in Sustainable Development” session, co-organized by UNU Macau and UNU-FLORES, aims to unpack the complex dynamics, investigate the key issues, and highlight the lessons and best practices from case studies of data-driven engagement and participation of citizens and the public. The session considers case studies from the various domains and scenarios of data use towards sustainable development, including citizen science, community-based monitoring, crowdsourced science, and data-driven citizen engagement.

    Some of the relevant questions/investigations in this session include:

    • The mechanisms for amplifying the Human Data Interaction imperatives of legibility, agency and negotiability (Mortier et al, 2014)
    • The quality assurance frameworks associated with the use of citizen-generated data and citizen science.
    • Unpacking the dynamics of citizen participation towards the goals of empowerment, engagement, and mutual beneficiation.
    • Data infrastructures for citizen participation and exploring issues of privacy, data provenance, data quality, and security.
    • Design principles for successful citizen science projects
