Vulnerable Publics: International Perspectives

American Geographical Society

The American Geographical Society and its EthicalGEO Initiative’s Location Tech Task Force have been 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. On Friday, July 10, 2020, as we discussed the impact new technologies and policies are having on vulnerable communities around the world. The most vulnerable societal groups are often subject to over-policing, under-service, and systematic denial. The conversation looked at how human rights can be protected as mobile-based surveillance strategies continue to develop.
