  • 7. Methodological and Disciplinary Challenges  Anonymisation and the usefulness of data  Relationships with research participants  Disciplinary orientations towards data  Challenge to the way in which social science claims are validated
  • 8. Social Science Data: the bigger picture  Ethics does not only pertain to possible re- identification of an individual  Cultural differences regarding whether privacy is of an individual or of a group (a family, a business, a clan)  Ethics also pertains to:  Representation as  Engendering or production of representation (how does a representation come to have the features that it does have?)  Purposes and goals
