Abstract

Self-determination is a social, political and cultural right that belongs equally to all peoples. The three articles in this special section show how Information Systems’ practice may limit this right on the one hand, or make significant contributions to its development, on the other. The ways in which information is collected and curated to diminish the stories that people wish to tell about themselves, or to create opportunities, is the articles’ common theme. They consider self-determination beyond its more usual study as a body of legal and political rights to show its deep cultural significance and to draw out Information Systems’ research and practice as inevitably cultural activities.
