MetadataShow full item record
This paper will look at the question how to explain the low adoption rates of Contact Tracing Apps. It will be argued that the low adoption rates of Contact Tracing Apps can be explained through a collective action problem. Displaying that Contact Tracing Apps contains a conflict of interest between the individual and the collective. The liberalcommunitarian debate gives us an insight into whose interests can be considered more decisive. However, privacy as will be argued in the paper can also be viewed as a collective good in the context of CTAs. This exemplifies that potentially two collective goods have been competing each other in the context of Contact Tracing Apps. Indicating a further aspect in the obstruction of the public adoption of CTAs.
