DERC Researcher Haiqing Yu awarded ARC Future Fellowship

August 2, 2020

We are very excited by the news that Haiqing Yu has been awarded ARC Future Fellowship!

Haiqing Yu’s project examines the development of the social credit system in China from a cultural and social perspective. It aims to empirically investigate the lived experience of social credit among individuals, families, and communities, in the context of China’s larger ambition to build a ‘digital civilisation’ through technological advancement.

Expected outcomes include policy briefings, reports, and an open-access research hub, as well as agenda-setting academic publications. The project will advance public understanding of and inform policy responses to automated decision-making and society in both Western and non-Western societies.
