  • How to use existent governance structures and tools to align data ethics with other policies such as integrity, open government and public procurement?
  • What are the systemic and organisational data governance implications for data ethics in the public sector?
  • How to move from non-binding values-driven principles to implementation to avoid data ethics washing?
