Using Transparency to Achieve Equality

30 November – 1 December 2020 

Conveners: Emerita Professor Margaret Thornton, Associate Professor Dominique Allen and Associate Professor Alysia Blackham

This workshop seeks to explore how the tension between privacy and transparency can be overcome in the attempt to achieve equality across all areas of public life. Drawing on interdisciplinary perspectives, and the practical insights of policy makers and agencies charged with obtaining data, the workshop seeks to find new ways of balancing the need for transparency with privacy and confidentiality, and to develop new principles to guide government and organisational activity in the pursuit of equality.
