International Data Responsibility Group

The International Data Responsibility Group (IDRG) is a global network of experts and organizations working on the principles and standards that are required for guiding the Data Revolution in the context of humanitarian action, sustainable development and peace & justice. Its members seek to build an authoritative knowledge platform that enables responsible experimentation on the release, processing and use of data and minimising risks. The IDRG is designed as a networked platform, with a coordinating secretariat in The Hague. Research and affiliated partners will meet every year to host the Annual International Data Responsibility Conference.

The IDRG has been officially launched on 23 October 2015 in The Hague.
