Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite those interested in Data Ethics to attend the Data Ethics Workshop on 11 December 2020. The online workshop is free and open to all interested.

Some background and registration details



The rise of Digital Feudalism not only raises questions over who controls, owns and benefits from the value of data, it also raises ethical questions related to privacy, accuracy and accessibility. This, in turn, leads to questions around the rise of digital monopolies and the power imbalance that could create; as well as the resulting data asymmetry and its impact on the global society. It is essential that we advance the dialogue on developing ethical principles and solutions as a means to help address these issues [1].

Data Ethics and Ethical frameworks in governance at all levels (from global to national to local) are important to protect democracy, protect human rights, prevent corruption, reduce nepotism etc.

Best wishes,


Dr. Suchith Anand

Chief Scientist

Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition
