How are parties (human and non-human) held accountable for their actions?
Reparations and reconciliation can only occur after both parties have acknowledged it. How does this work if one party ’ghosts’ or otherwise leaves the conversation? This is especially prevalent in online/pseudonymous interactions.
How do we keep people accountable in digital spaces and virtual worlds? Is it better to create better tools to help users manage digital boundaries or to shift the responsibility to the platforms? Do we do moderation at the infrastructure level?
Scaling emotional labour
Also note that the emotional labour that goes into holding a group accountable goes up in a democratic setting when more people are involved (see also: group limits). Is there a point where it is almost always better to have an authoritarian/impersonal third party? (e.g. the state and the law)
