Research Series on Citizen-generated Data

In 2016, I worked with researchers from Open Knowledge International, Danny Lämmerhirt and Shazade Jameson, investigating how citizens and civil society create data to drive sustainable development. We researched and interviewed representatives from case studies such as Mobile Birth Registration – UNICEF Tanzania, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Indonesia, FixMyStreet – mySociety UK, Code for South Africa and Land Matrix Initiative.

The research series, published by Datashift and Open Knowledge International, as follow:
