Romei A., Ruggieri S., Turini F. Discovering gender discrimination in project funding. In: ICDMW 2012 - IEEE 12th International Conference on Data Mining Workshops (Brussels, Belgium, 10 December 2012). Proceedings, pp. 394 - 401. IEEE, 2012.
The selection of projects for funding can hide discriminatory decisions. We present a case study investigating gender discrimination in a dataset of scientific research proposals submitted to an Italian national call. The method for the analysis relies on a data mining classification strategy that is inspired by a legal methodology for proving evidence of social discrimination against protected-by-law groups.
