UNHCR and decision-making about AI

Project Summary

I will examine decisions relating to the adoption and use of data-driven AITs as decision-supporting tools by humanitarian actors within the ‘global refugee regime’. Adopting an institutional ethnographic approach, my project aims to identify the forces shaping these decisions as well as their ethical and political implications.
