    Sunlight Alone is Not a Disinfectant: Consent and the Futility of Opening Big Data Black Boxes.Jonathan A. Obar - 2020 - Big Data and Society 7 (1):205395172093561.
    In our attempts to achieve privacy and reputation deliverables, advocating for service providers and other data managers to open Big Data black boxes and be more transparent about consent processes, algorithmic details, and data practice is easy. Moving from this call to meaningful forms of transparency, where the Big Data details are available, useful, and manageable is more difficult. Most challenging is moving from that difficult task of meaningful transparency to the seemingly impossible scenario of achieving, consistently and ubiquitously, meaningful (...)

    Big Data and The Phantom Public: Walter Lippmann and the Fallacy of Data Privacy Self-Management.Jonathan A. Obar - 2015 - Big Data and Society 2 (2).
    In 1927, Walter Lippmann published The Phantom Public, denouncing the ‘mystical fallacy of democracy.’ Decrying romantic democratic models that privilege self-governance, he writes: “I have not happened to meet anybody, from a President of the United States to a professor of political science, who came anywhere near to embodying the accepted ideal of the sovereign and omnicompetent citizen.” Almost 90 years later, Lippmann’s pragmatism is as relevant as ever, and should be applied in new contexts where similar self-governance concerns persist.

    Factors Influencing Women’s Decisions Regarding Birth Planning in a Rural Setting in Kenya and Their Implications for Family Planning Programmes.Francis Obare, George Odwe & John Cleland - forthcoming - Journal of Biosocial Science:1-13.
    Evidence suggests that socio-cultural barriers that limit the ability of women in sub-Saharan Africa to make decisions regarding contraceptive use and childbearing contribute to the slow uptake of contraception in this region. This paper explores factors influencing women’s decisions regarding contraceptive uptake, switching and discontinuation, and the implications of those decisions for family planning programmes. Data were from in-depth interviews that were conducted in 2018 with 42 women who participated in a longitudinal research project implemented in Homa Bay County of (...)

    Bentham and the Death Penalty.Brian Calvert - 2006 - Dialogue 45 (2):211-231.
    This article examines the three works of Jeremy Bentham on capital punishment dating Irom 1775, 1809, and 1831. Besides Hugo Bedau’s analysis of Bentham’s 1775 and 1831 works and James Crimmins’s assessment of Bentham’s 1809 work, little attention has been paid to his abolitionist arguments on this contentious issue. I review some of the developments in Bentham’s position, noting where the later work corrects some deficiencies in the earlier work, and I assess the cogency of the position as it (...)
