As a Meractor Research Fellow at the NRW School of Governance at University of Duisburg-Essen I am investigating social media use in public management and police in Nordrhein-Westfalen (NRW). With this research fellowship, I want to investigate exploratively the state of 'datafication' in NRW. Expert interviews with decision makers and practcioners from government bodies and the police shall provide insight into the process of implementing social media metrics and algorithmic processes into the various activities from communicating policies to monitoring publics and intervening in case of emergencies. The insights gained will be relevant in order to understand the transformation of our understanding of public sphere and democracy.
