Case Study Approach
The AGENCY work programme is structured around three case studies that have been identified from trends reported in the White Paper on Online Harms and the framework for unintended harms. The resulting case studies represent situations where technology intersects with social challenges related to agency and empowerment.
The case studies we consider are:
Example Complex Harm: life-interfering misappropriation of health-related data, unhealthy eating behaviours through peer pressure.
Example Complex Harm: domestic violence made worse by surveillance, misappropriation and misuse of data collected by industrial parties.
