"Communal data governance: digital access and protection in indigenous territories of Oaxaca, Mexico"

With expanding internet coverage,  the issues of access to information in native languages and data protection have become increasingly important in indigenous communities in Mexico, long subject to discrimination and extractivist economic practices. This talk examines the issue of communal data governance in Oaxaca, exploring how indigenous rights and traditions of self governance are being extended into the realm of Information and Communication Technologies.
