Data Ethics, Privacy, and Governance Workshop

An information-sharing event and workshop to discuss what the New Zealand data system could look like.

Key themes discussed:

  • What are the biggest present challenges with the current data system?
  • Māori data access and governance
  • What would an optimal holistic ethics process look like?
  • Example priority areas:
    • Equality of access
    • Standard linkages of popular datasets
    • Externalising data catalogues
    • Definitive code repositories
    • Optimal (effective, timely, standardised) governance processes

The aim of this workshop was to establish the key themes for a Symposium to be held in early 2023. A summary report of the event is below.
