CGS proudly hosted MillerComm 2018: Human Rights, Gender Violence, and the Challenge of Global Governance by Number presented by Professor Sally Engle Merry on April 10th, 2018.

Bio: Professor Sally Engle Merry’s research interests focus on human rights, gender violence and, most recently, how big data indicators have been used as a tool of power to influence global governance practices. Big data sets and the statistical techniques that accompany them have impacted governance, decision-making, and the public’s access to information. During her talk, Professor Merry addressed the implications of the “big data” revolution on contemporary social life and global governance.
