Seminar - Data derivatives: The life of risk flags, maps and scores

23rd November 2009, 12:30 to 14:00, Seminar Room 010, Department of Geography, Mara Wesseling, Louise Amoore, Alex Hall and Stuart Lane

Mara Wesseling from the University of Amsterdam, together with Louise Amoore, Alex Hall and Stuart Lane, will present a seminar about the Data Wars project entitled 'Data derivatives: The life of risk flags, maps and scores'.

Data Wars is a three-year research project which investigates new spaces of governing in the war on terror. The project analyses the ways in which the mobility of people and the mobility of money are being governed in the war on terror, and aims to understand how commercial data - including financial records and passenger information - become used for security decisions in Europe. Data Wars also examines the wider social and political implications of these security developments.
