Narratives and Counternarratives on Data Practices in the Global South" is an interactive workshop that uses storytelling to challenge current narratives about data practices in the countries and communities that are often grouped as “the Global South.” During the workshop, the organizers will provide various theme-based stories that are informed by common narratives around data practices and ask participants to challenge these narratives from various angles including historical contexts and cultures, legal limitations, accessibility, impact assessments, accountability mechanism, and more. A few potential topics that inform the stories include: transnational technology companies presence and allocation of resources in a developing nation; participatory methods for designing and developing Machine Learning-based services; Data-for-Good hackathons; data sharing practices between international NGOs, private foundations, and governments; private and public sector open data practices; policies around localization and sovereignty of data infrastructure.
