Title:Human security informatics: A human-centered approach to tackling information and recordkeeping issues integral to societal grand challenges
Author(s):Gilliland, Anne J.; Carbone, Kathy
Subject(s):Human security
Abstract:Emanating out of ongoing research in archival and recordkeeping studies, this paper proposes Human Security Informatics (HSI) as a new human- and humanitarian-centered rubric and approach under which concerted research, development and educational efforts by the iSchool community, and the different fields and interests it encompasses, could be brought to bear to resolve or mitigate information, data and records-related challenges that are integral to and pervasive in societal grand challenges and wicked problems. The HSI approach is distinctive and provocative for several reasons: it puts humanitarian ethics and a participatory ethos at is core; it surfaces aspects of information infrastructure, particularly those relating to recordkeeping, transparency and accountability that often go unrecognized and unacknowledged as components of these intractable problems; and it places the expertise and scope of iSchools in conversation with each other and with many other fields, institutions and governments that are on the frontlines of addressing these problems fully demonstrating the intellectual power and societal potential of the iSchools.
