5 stories
story #1:" 
mapping dominant 
topics and countries in 
UN climate negotiations
“In what seems like a flash, the climate-change 
debate has lurched from talk of mitigation to 
one of adaptation.” 
– Leo Hickman, “Can carbon offsetting ever be truly green?”, 
The Guardian, 3rd September 2008.
The Atlantic (2014) “The UN's New Focus: Surviving, Not Stopping, Climate Change”. 
Available at: http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2014/04/the-uns-new-focus-surviving-not-stopping- 
climate-change/359929/
“Adaptation turn”
Can the shift from mitigation to adaptation be 
observed in the UNFCCC negotiations?
Venturini, T., Baya-laffite, N., Cointet, J., Gray, I., Zabban, V., & De Pryck, K. (2014) “Three Maps and Three 
Misunderstandings : A Digital Mapping of Climate Diplomacy.” Big Data and Society, 2014, 1(1). 
Available at: http://medialab.sciences-po.fr/publications/misunderstandings/
Findings" 
Mitigation is more dominant - the majority of 
the clusters are about mitigation. 
Mitigation is much more diverse and 
distributed. 
Adaptation is a much more tightly clustered 
topic and highly connected to other topics.
Venturini, T., Baya-laffite, N., Cointet, J., Gray, I., Zabban, V., & De Pryck, K. (2014) “Three Maps and Three 
Misunderstandings : A Digital Mapping of Climate Diplomacy.” Big Data and Society, 2014, 1(1).

Misunderstandings : A Digital Mapping of Climate Diplomacy.” Big Data and Society, 2014, 1(1). 
Available at: http://medialab.sciences-po.fr/publications/misunderstandings/
Findings" 
Both adaptation and mitigation are highly 
visible in negotiations. 
Adaptation financing has been central to 
climate negotiations from the outset. 
There is a noticeable shift towards adaptation 
during the period we examined.
Venturini, T., Baya-laffite, N., Cointet, J., Gray, I., Zabban, V., & De Pryck, K. (2014) “Three Maps and Three 
Misunderstandings : A Digital Mapping of Climate Diplomacy.” Big Data and Society, 2014, 1(1). 
Available at: http://medialab.sciences-po.fr/publications/misunderstandings/
Which countries intervene most in UN climate 
negotiations and how do these interventions 
evolve over time?
How is this usually analysed?
The New York Times (2014) “Who’s at the Climate Talks, and What Do They Seek?”. 
Available at: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2009/12/05/world/climate-graphic-players.html
What we did differently…
Graphing the number of interventions in the 
negotiations of the 21 most active countries 
based on daily summaries from the Earth 
Negotiations Bulletin (ENB)
Venturini, T., Baya-laffite, N., Cointet, J., Gray, I., Zabban, V., & De Pryck, K. (2014) “Three Maps and Three 
Misunderstandings : A Digital Mapping of Climate Diplomacy.” Big Data and Society, 2014, 1(1). 
Available at: http://medialab.sciences-po.fr/publications/misunderstandings/
Findings" 
Notable stability in presence and intervention 
of countries. 
Notable exceptions include Bolivia and 
Philippines who are becoming more prominent 
in recent negotiations. 
Most active are China (representing G77), 
United States and Europe. 
Countries tend to be more active when they 
host the negotiations.

more Malawian doctors in Manchester than 
Malawi. Now, it seems, there are more Ethiopian 
doctors in Chicago than in Ethiopia.” 
– Sue George, “Assessing the cause and effect of health 
worker migration”, The Guardian, 18th January 2011.
“[a 2010 global code of practice] sets out

increase the consistency of national policies 
and discourage unethical practices” 
– Sue George, “Assessing the cause and effect of health 
worker migration”, The Guardian, 18th January 2011.
Which actors in the UK health sector are

5 innovations
innovation #1:" 
! 
social media and web as 
data about society
“The social is visible only by the traces it leaves..” 
– Bruno Latour, Reassembling the Social: An Introduction to Actor-Network 
Theory. (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2005), p. 8
““The interest of electronic media lies in the fact 
that every interaction that passes through them 
leaves traces..” 
– Bruno Latour & Tommaso Venturini, “The Social Fabric: 
Digital Traces and Quali-quantitative Methods”, p. 6
Web and social media data 
are digital traces of the social.
Not just content, but metadata, 
relationships and interactions.
Digital methods are “methods of the medium” 
designed to repurpose digital objects such as 
tags, likes, links and hashtags to study issues.
Some tools that organise web and 
social media for research…
“Netvizz is a tool that extracts data from 
different sections of the Facebook platform 
(personal profile, groups, pages) for research 
purposes.”
Rieder, B. (2013). Studying Facebook via data extraction: the Netvizz application. In WebSci '13 
Proceedings of the 5th Annual ACM Web Science Conference (pp. 346-355). New York: ACM.
Netvizz: https://tools.digitalmethods.net/netvizz/facebook/netvizz/
“The Twitter Capture and Analysis Toolset 
(DMI-TCAT) captures tweets and allows for 
multiple analyses (hashtags, mentions, users, 
search, ...).”

tweets”. Aslib Journal of Information Management. Vol. 66 No. 3: 262-278.

instead of Google.”

Democracy”. Global Information Society Watch 2009.
For example: 
!

the local Google versions.

network analysis to

“The main tenet of [social network analysis] is to 
envision groups and other social units as 
networks, that is, as connected ensembles that 
emerge from tangible and direct connections 
(friendships, work relationships, joint leisure, 
direct interactions, etc.) rather than as social 
categories.”
