Problem-solving for Problem-solving: Data Analytics to Identify Families for Service Intervention

Presentation British Sociological Association Annual Conference 2021

Project PI Ros Edwards presented findings from our project at the British Sociological Association annual conference 2021.

The paper, Problem-solving for Problem-solving: Data Analytics to Identify Families for Service Intervention looks at the way that the promise of technological fixes in the family policy field has set up a set of dependencies between public services and data analytic companies, entrenching a focus on individual families as the source of social problems rather than social conditions.

The paper that was the basis of Ros’s presentation has now been published in Critical Social Policy
