We will be participating in the Workshop “Emerging ICT for Citizens’ Veillance: Theoretical and Practical Insights” at the Institute for Protection and Security of the Citizen of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) – March 20 to 21 in Ispra, Italy.
“This workshop will bring together scholars, technicians, policy-makers, and activists to consider how emerging ICT can be designed to reflect citizens’ values and to support citizens’ empowerment in democratic, affordable, and sustainable ways. Through presentations and roundtable discussions, participants will discuss the current state-of-art and existing experiences with emerging ICT in relation to citizens’ vigilance and consider ethical questions, potential technological solutions and future research topics.”
