Dragon Hall Debates: Surveillance – Are we being watched?
From Facebook, to China, to the FBI and MI5, the ways in which we’re watched – and the question of who is watching us – seem to be omnipresent in the news cycle. What problems – and what good – are arising from this world of constant surveillance? In this debate, UEA’s Dr Joe Purshouse will challenge the legality of facial recognition technology and UEA’s Dr Kaeten Mistry will explore what happens after the proverbial whistle is blown.

This event will take place online via UEA’s Blackboard platform. Please register for free in advance to register a streaming link direct to your inbox.

Suitable for ages 16+.
