Masterarbeit im Studiengang Cognitive Science von Felix Schmitt:

How Information Sovereignty Combines the Concepts of Privacy and Misinformation and How It Could Guide Future Research

Abstract: During the last decades, misinformation and privacy became two of the most prominent and extensively researched topics related to the Internet. Especially  on social media, users are constantly challenged to determine which incoming information they deem credible, and which  outgoing information they feel comfortable revealing about themselves. Regardless,  there are little to no approaches tackling both concepts together. By  conducting a literature review, this thesis aims to determine if “personal information  sovereignty” serves as a useful concept for their combination, focusing  on the users control over their personal data. For this, definitions of  the relevant terms such as information and sovereignty are revisited. Then, it is investigated where privacy and misinformation  overlap, how they influence each other, why it makes sense to combine  them and which implications can be deduced from these findings. Central  commonalities include their focus on the flow, diffusion and overload of information, the challenges stemming from the  impenetrability of the digital information space, the different degrees  of assistance users need, and the promising possibilities of improving  media literacy. Analyzing the existing research on these topics shows that “personal information sovereignty” can serve  as a helpful concept to address these issues. It has to be noted,  though, that concepts are applied differently in diverse scenarios and  by various researchers, therefore rendering its wide application unforeseeable.
