Data justice explores the relationship between datafication and social justice. It looks at the impacts of data-driven processes on different populations. ​

A data justice lens in humanitarian settings, then looks at how humanitarian data initiatives typically affect local risk and resilience as well as oppression, equity, and shifts in power.​
