Digitisation has transformed how we interact with our social, political and economic environments. While it has enhanced the potential for citizen agency, it has also enabled the collection and analysis of unprecedented amounts of personal data. Conceptions of active digital citizenship must therefore be complemented by an awareness of the monitoring and profiling of citizens.

Digital Citizenship in a Datafied Society offers a new understanding of citizenship in an age defined by data collection and processing. Hintz, Dencik and Wahl-Jorgensen trace the social forces, as well as the norms and ideologies, which shape digital citizenship. They investigate regulatory frameworks, mediated public debate, citizens' knowledge and understanding, and possibilities for dissent and resistance, as well as the conditions in which digital citizenship is formed and how it might be enhanced in an era of datafication.

Drawing on extensive empirical research and deftly connecting debates on digital citizenship, big data and surveillance, this book is indispensable reading for scholars and students of media and communication, technology, politics and surveillance studies, as well as those working with issues of citizenship and social change.
