“New and emerging technology for policing and surveillance presents numerous risks for human rights and social justice. We need to ensure that there are appropriate governance and regulatory structures in place to protect individuals.”
Dr Monique Mann is a Senior Lecturer in Criminology and member of the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation at Deakin University. Dr Mann is an Adjunct Researcher with the Law, Science, Technology and Society Research Centre at Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
