Secondary use of government-held personal data: public interest, law, ethics and good practice

Project details

Australia and New Zealand are both seeking to maximise the re-use of people’s personal data, held by governments, in research. Examples from Australia (My Health Record and the Commonwealth Data Availability and Transparency Bill) and New Zealand (the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI)) yield ethico-legal questions around consent, privacy, public interest and personal expectations of data control and re-use.

This project, involving collaboration between the University of Melbourne and the University of Auckland, will examine these issues through relevant case studies, fostering research collaboration across the Tasman on how to govern these data to best serve the public good.
