The purpose of this research group is to consider the practical and normative applications of DMRC research, and to bridge the divide between academic research and policy impact.
Core research considers how existing policy and governance frameworks and state regulation can evolve to meet the demands of developing digital societies. For example, what policy interventions are needed to: better protect user data privacy / reduce racial biases in online systems / constrain anti-competitive platform behaviour?
Other activities include providing collective support for DMRC policy submissions.
