The Ethics of Digitalisation: From Principles to Practice advances dialogue and action at the intersection of science, politics, digital economy, and civil society. Digitalization efforts are rapidly proliferating across sectors, prompting new and large-scale ethical challenges that arise from technological development and deployment that have important rights and justice implications. This project engaged interdisciplinary networks of scholars and students, as well as civil society groups, policymakers, and other stakeholders in order to advance research outputs with social relevance in application-related and practice-based contexts such as content moderation, tech-assisted learning, or well-being.
The Ethics of Digitalisation was led by the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG), the Berkman Klein Center, and the Digital Asia Hub, in collaboration with various research centers of the Global Network of Internet & Society Centers (NoC), and with the German President as patron and the support of Stiftung Mercator.
