Description

‘Citizen sensing’, framed as grassroots-driven monitoring initiatives based on sensor technology, is increasingly entering the debate on environmental risk governance.  Although through a possible initial conflict, citizen sensing may ultimately have the potential to contribute to institutional risk governance. Building on previous empirical research based on a combination ofmethods, including ethnographical research, descriptive analysis and fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis, Berti Suman designs an accessible ‘toolbox’ for interested communities, policy-makers and researchers that wish to shape citizen sensing initiatives in a way to contribute to risk governance.

Anna Berti Suman is a NWO Rubicon postdoctoral researcher at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society, seconded at the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) – Digital Economy Unit. As a NWO fellow, Anna is performing research on the potential of Citizen Sensing for environmental litigation and mediation. Anna obtained her PhD on May 8, 2020. Her PhD project aimed at investigating how Citizen Sensing influences the governance of environmental health risk and how the practice can be integrated with institutional models of risk governance. Anna has a background in Law from the University of Bologna and Transnational Law from the University of Geneva. Her specializations are International and European Environmental Law, Health Law and Technology, and Participation Studies. She has work and research experience in the health sector, environmental litigation and water law. Besides academia, Anna volunteers on environmental matters.
