Don Rodney Junio, Senior Research Assistant at the United Nations University Institute of Computing and Society (UNU-CS), represented the Apprise team in the 2019 CODATA conference held in Beijing, China from 19-20 September 2019 as part of the session “Next-generation data assemblages for enhanced citizen participation in sustainable development”. In the panel, Don presented a paper entitled “Apprise: Engaging citizens in designing a tool for identifying potential victims of human trafficking.”
The paper chronicled 3 key lessons from the development of Apprise, drawing on empirical evidence and field notes collected over more than 2 years in Thailand. Specifically, the paper focused on the importance of how data collection practices should be informed by participatory design principles, intensive stakeholder engagement, and a solution-centric data collection model.
