Respecting indigenous peoples’ data rights and governance
Current trends in data governance do not align well with indigenous peoples' data rights and governance rules, as they have different epistemological traditions for using and sharing culturally sensitive information. Beyond issues regarding privacy, control and surveillance, this raises concerns related to people’s ability to exert data sovereignty over their natural resources or traditional knowledge. The EU-funded RIDaGoP project will research the gap between traditional knowledge-sharing protocols and existing open-data management practices, to develop a toolkit that contributes to more ethical data governance and upholds principles of indigenous data sovereignty in the context of open-data research. RIDaGoP aims to reframe how indigenous peoples are represented and foresees the potential for wider application to issues such as national statistics and health.
