Sammanfattning

Several national initiatives for facilitating citizen science are developed, both in as well as outside Europe. Such initiatives both concern capacity-building resources for researchers and members of concerned communities, providing tools and best practices for designing and implementing projects. Many initiatives address issues of standardisation and data quality, ethics, implementation of technology, and communication. As important as such issues are for guaranteeing scientifically valid data, they also are instantiations of the imagined epistemic subjects that will perform them. Thus, who is the citizen constructed in national initiatives on citizen science? Are there national or cultural traits? To enroll people into science relies on a certain level of power to ensure alignment according to standardisation and data quality. How is participation related to this power and how is it extended or compromised over time? An inherent possibility is that citizens have the power to contest it or deviate from it, and to create a contrary program implying some degree of contestation or tension. In this session, we will discuss how power is understood within national initiatives for citizen science and how contributors are constructed as epistemic subjects rendering their involvement in scientific work possible.
