Big Tech & the Global South with Nandini Chami
In this fourth Crash Course episode of the series on Big Tech, Techno-feudalism and Democracy, we take a closer look at how we could resist the enormous and all-encompassing influence Big Tech and platform economies have on our lives. How can we regain control over our individual and collective data as they are being increasingly commodified and traded? Nandini Chami, deputy director of IT4Change, answers these and other questions and links the rise of Big Tech to growing inequality and development in the Global South.

We will further ask Chami:

- Can we gain back ownership of our personal and collective data and intelligence?

- What would local, national and global regulation of Big Tech look like?

- How can growing digitilsation of trade and the economy work for development?
