Security Ethics

Security Ethics

We help identify ethical issues associated with security and security technology including;

  • surveillance
  • detection technologies
  • biometrics in the fields of counter-terrorism
  • airport and border security
  • preventive and predictive policing

We also provide ethical advice and consultancy on these issues. We work with human rights lawyers, technology developers and assessors, and police on a range of multidisciplinary applied projects.
