We are happy to launch the Sphere Transgression Watch. The STW is a digital tool that tracks and visualizes the growing presence of Big Tech in different sectors – or spheres – of society, such as health, education, news provision and public policy.


STW is an open data tool that researchers in the field can contribute to. It acts as a public archive of examples of sphere transgressions that can be used for research and for raising public awareness about the reach of Big Tech – both within different spheres of society and across society as an aggregation of spheres. Please take a look, circulate and add examples of transgressions!

STW was made possible by funding from the ERC as part of the Digital Good project and draws on Michael Walzer’s Spheres of Justice.
