CDH Webinar: The datafication of race-ethnicity in Dutch governmental databases23 mar 2023
Van 15:00 - 16:15uur
Time: 15:00 – 16:15
For his PhD research, Gerwin van Schie delved into the data systems of Dutch government bodies to look at the algorithms used there. He focused on the way Dutch immigrant populations are ‘datafied’ by various societal institutions. Dutch governmental classifications are based on immigrants’ former nationality and that of their parents and often relate to the colonial history of the Netherlands or their country of birth. During this webinar, he will talk about the results and the methods he has used.
