Oversight and Accountability

Once DPI has been implemented, it must be sustained. This means not sleeping on the clock and ensuring that there is concrete data governance in place, with independent bodies and adjudicators able to hold governments to account. This also must involve the secure and transparent sharing of data, ensuring that individuals and communities maintain trust in DPI. Importantly, oversight and accountability cannot just be tacked on to the end of a law - such safeguards must be developed alongside policies, laws, and technology and be well-resourced and independent.
