CFP 4S / EASST: Peripheral States: Public Uses and Misuses of Big Data Technologies

                Dear all,
<br>
<br>Please consider this call for proposals for the open panel 133 to be
<br>held at EASST/4S 18-21 August 2020 in Prague:
<br>
<br>*Open Panel**133

<br>
<br>
<br>    Peripheral States: Public Uses and Misuses of Big Data Technologies
<br>
<br>For the last ten years, governments, especially in peripheral states
<br>have followed the technological path imposed by the giants of the new
<br>digital economy without having the time of reflecting and regulate the
<br>side effects of the production and accumulation of such amount of
<br>private and sensitive information. Moreover, many of them has fallen in
<br>the temptation of building (buying) mass surveillance systems to better
<br>control their citizens without having a real control over the technology
<br>they are using.
<br>
<br>This open panel aims to bring together scholars from different parts of
<br>the world to discuss the paths and approach governments from south and
<br>north are following in the adoption of big data technologies, their uses
<br>and misuses.

<br>
<br>big data, peripheral states, data leaks, surveillance systems, privacy
