National Security Perspectives on Location Surveillance and the Future of Democracy
The American Geographical Society and its EthicalGEO Initiative’s Location Tech Task Force is convening a series of Blue-Ribbon Panels and Leadership Spotlights examining the ethical implications of mobile location technology in the era of COVID-19 and beyond. National security leaders in the United States have knowledge of the technologies required for effective surveillance to combat threats, and have developed many restrictions concerning surveillance within the continental United States. Join us, and former national security leaders, in the conversation surrounding the use of mobile-based surveillance technologies and the risks and benefits they bring to society as a whole.
