Justice is a numbers game
Every year national authorities release data on crimes in their jurisdiction. This report shows the number of cases as per crimes. It also gives us data on cases disposed by the courts. What do these numbers mean? Are they real reflection of justice? What about experience of marginalised communities? How can wikidata use this information? These and a lot more questions will be discussed. The goal is not to find answers but to begin asking the difficult questions.
