Security ethics

Security cameras

The IERG Security Ethics team works on ethical issues associated with security and security technology, including surveillance, detection technologies and 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.
