Freedom, equality and sorority
We still believe in freedom, equality, and fraternity, and the need to strive for a just society. A socio-technical contract on data in the digital era will be necessary to advance towards it.
We believe in data sovereignty/autonomy, data justice and data commons: people should be able to equitably control, share and benefit from data. If the market has symbolized freedom and the State formal equality, we believe commons points towards fraternity and sorority, and should be the base of a better digital society.
Data collection and use must be consensual, fair and transparent (Good Data Principle #11, The Good Data Project ).
Data is not neutral or unbiased, so it must bear a critical, political and ethical analysis.
Privacy and data protection are key: furthermore, people have the right to be free from all forms of unlawful or unfair interference in their digital life.
Data is usually relational, so we must think beyond the individual, towards collective rights.
