Located at York University in Toronto, Canada, the Global Digital Citizenship Lab applies the conceptual, methodological, and theoretical tools of critical social science to conduct research on the cultural, economic, and socio-political effects of digitally informed practices and discourses in global civil society. We study how the uses of digital technologies and social media platforms are impacting public debates and controversies about pressing social issues, ranging from climate change and online abuse to open access and evidentiary reliability.
