Workshop report: ethics and social media

“The Ethics and Open Spaces of Human Rights Social Media: Towards Provisional Ethical Working Principles and Dialogues”

The negotiation of consent, rights, and usage between a documentarian and subject within social media has often been defined by an undergrid questions of ethical responsibility to the “person, to the story, to action.”

While these questions have largely focused of an ethics of the image, the workshop drew our attention to the need to shift from an ethics of the image to an “ethics of networks” because “material circulates, recombines and is reused in multiple relationships between people often distant from the source originators.”
