Organisation: Open Knowledge Foundation (UK)

Meg Foulkes is the Director of the Open Knowledge Justice Programme, a project of Open Knowledge Foundation. The Justice Programme's mission is to ensure public impact algorithms cause no harm. By 'public impact algorithms' we mean automated decision-making using AI and algorithms by governments and corporate entities that has the potential to cause serious negative impacts on individuals. We aim to make the deployment of these algorithms accountable, through training legal professionals, advocacy and strategic litigation.
Before joining Open Knowledge in 2012, Meg worked as a Legal Adviser at the Refugee Legal Centre for detained asylum seekers in the UK. She is currently combining her day job with qualifying as a barrister, which she will do in July 2021.
