Abstract: Abstract Digital and data technologies are not merely tools or enablers of development; they are the scaffolds of a new social paradigm. As data flows through a more and more interconnected planet, the capture of network-data spaces by corporate and state interest recasts opportunity structures, heightening inequalities between, and within, countries. The intertwining of technological architectures and socio-economic structures presents key concerns for a transformative vision of development for people and planet alike. This article examines why and how norms and rules at global, national and local levels need to be overhauled towards a development justice that protects and promotes economic justice, redistributive justice, social justice, environmental justice and institutional accountability.
