Data Ethics and International Migration

This panel brought together migration scholars and practitioners to reflect on how data ethics shape and should shape engagement with international migration research and practice. It addressed data ethics in relation to both questions of vulnerability and risk associated with undocumented and forced migrants. Panelists discussed, among other issues, how developments in computational social science and other fields raise thorny questions about how and whether scholars working with big data and other large data sets can guarantee anonymity.

This was the first panel of the CMS 2021 Virtual Academic & Policy Symposium.
