DigiGov Winter School 1-3 February 2023


The research platform Governance of Digital Practices will host the 2nd interdisciplinary and international winter school and the call for applications is open now!

Digital practices determine how we are able to access resources and infrastructures. They co-shape and reflect existing dependencies and inequalities but they also amplify and perpetuate them. The interdisciplinary and international DigiGov Winter School 2023 will therefore explore:

How do digital practices shape global inequalities? How do global inequalities shape digital practices? 

Together with our members and affiliates as well as external experts from various disciplines and fields of practice, we will:

  • dive into topics such as digital activism driven by social change across the globe, data governance, and how to assess and operationalize public value
  • address inequities with a focus on 'extractive practices' and the in/visibilities of dependencies and exploitation using the socio-technical spheres around AI as exploratory space 
  • discuss the enforcement of digital fundamental rights in Europe and beyond and through the lens of experienced NGO professionals. 

Our speakers include:

When & Where: 1 – 3 February 2023 | 9:00 - 16:30 CET incl. breaks, online via ZoomStructure: three modules per day | keynotes, presentations and interactive workshops
