Policy project: Outlining a feminist digital policy: How can we make digital policy and tech regulation take societal risks into account and work in the public interest?

When it comes to digitization, policymakers and civil society operate within a narrative framework that is dictated by the big tech companies: Business and innovation. As a result, digital policies are mainly framed as economic policies, whereas societal needs take a back seat. While tech companies are growing and their businesses are flourishing, the negative societal effects of their of their digital products and services are increasingly noticeable.
