Data-Driven Pandemic Policy, Public Health and Policing: Benefits and Risks

May 18 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm BST

On Tuesday 18 May OMDDAC will be launching snapshot reports into key data-driven responses to the Covid-19 pandemic


On Tuesday 18 May 1400-1530 BST the Observatory for Monitoring Data-Driven Approaches to Covid-19 (OMDDAC) will launch three Snapshot Reports detailing the latest findings from its research into data-driven approaches to Covid-19 and the associated legal, ethical, policy and operational challenges.

Since November 2020, OMDDAC has been analysing key data-driven responses to the pandemic and collating lessons learned through stakeholder interviews and in-depth case study analysis.

The Observatory’s latest research will be released in Snapshot Reports, which examine key case studies across three themes: Data-Driven Pandemic Decision Making and Public Policy; Technology-Driven Approaches to Public Health; and Policing and Public Safety.

A presentation of OMDDAC’s findings will be followed by a moderated panel discussion featuring:

  • Chief Inspector Christine Boyd – Operation Talla Information Cell, Police Scotland
  • Emily Jarratt – Senior Policy Advisor, Centre for Data Ethics & Innovation (CDEI)
  • Dr James Sampson-Foster – Lead Analyst (Qualitative Specialist), Coventry City Council

The event will be chaired by Keith Ditcham, Senior Research Fellow in RUSI’s Organised Crime and Policing Research Group and OMDDAC Co-Investigator.
