The Uses and Abuses of Counting in Contemporary Policing and Surveillance

March 23, 2018

Join us for the 2018 Walter Gordon Symposium. The panel will focus on the social implications of counting as it relates to the law and its enforcement. The proliferation of data analytics within police departments and related law enforcement agencies presents important ethical questions for the contemporary relationship between the state and its citizens. We would encourage exploration of the following central questions, among others: who is 'counted' in the eyes of the law; when and how does 'counting' violate civil liberties or disproportionately target marginalized communities; are there legitimate ways in which 'counting' can improve the administration of justice?

Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Venue: Campbell Conference Facility
Location: 1 Devonshire Place Toronto, ON
Categories: Human Rights, Law, Legal
