Scrutinizing Surveillance: Discussions in Technology and Justice






Join the Northeastern University School of Law’s Center for Law, Innovation and Creativity for a summer series of expert-driven conversations about the emerging issues in tech justice. The theme for 2020 is surveillance.

When: Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 12:00 – 1:30 PM

Where: Online

RSVP: Here.

How do innovations in surveillance technology impact marginalized communities? Are the risks involved in the implementation of COVID-related contact tracing apps worth the reward? How does big data impact policing strategies on campuses and in the community?

Join CLIC for a series of expert-driven conversations about the future of surveillance technology. Hear from NUSL alumni and faculty, as well as industry experts and community organizers working across the country in policy, technology, academia, and more. Each conversation invites the audience to pose questions that address the question: What can be done to ensure that technology doesn’t perpetuate systems of discrimination and injustice?
