How do you deal with structural injustice that operates in digital environments through practices of profiling, surveillance and control over your online identity?
Data-intense platforms construct a space where our data twins and avatars operate. Interaction between the digital and the analogical world has created a space for a new kind of structural oppression, not yet recognized by the law. Consequently, too many injustices are left without a legal fora and means to contest injustices publicly.
I claim that individualistic legal procedure has come to its end. Instead, collective redress would provide a counter power to address structural abuses in digital environments. Latest documents, in which the EU is setting its future agenda to strengthen collective redress only underline this claim. I argue that we need a new way of interpreting collective harm and a renewed way of categorizing collectives.
