International Data Responsibility Conference 2017 (The Hague, Netherlands)

 

Every spring, the International Data Responsibility Group organises the annual IDRG conference in The Hague. This annual meeting brings together experts and practitioners working with data for crisis-affected communities and the most at-risk populations worldwide. Through presentations by a variety of experts and several interactive workshops, participants explore the potential risks and harms that could be caused by using this data, and ways to prevent these from materializing. The theme for this year's conference will be the potential risks of collecting and processing digital data in the European Refugee Crisis.

Speakers we have already confirmed include:

  • Nathaniel Raymond (Director, Signal Program on Human Security and Technology, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative - Cambridge, US)
  • ​Stefaan Verhulst (Co-Founder and Director of Research, New York University GovLab - New York City, US)
  • Mark Latonero (Researcher, Data & Society Research Institute - New York City, US)
  • Dani Poole (PhD Researcher, Signal Program on Human Security and Technology, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative - Cambridge, US)
