New Book: New Technologies for Human Rights Law and Practice (Land & Aronson (Ed.))

Molly K. Land and Jay D. Aronson (Eds.) just published “New Technologies for Human Rights Law and Practice” (Cambridge University Press 2020).

Abstract:

New technological innovations offer significant opportunities to promote and protect human rights. At the same time, they also pose undeniable risks. In some areas, they may even be changing what we mean by human rights. The fact that new technologies are often privately controlled raises further questions about accountability and transparency and the role of human rights in regulating these actors. This volume – edited by Molly K. Land and Jay D. Aronson – provides an essential roadmap for understanding the relationship between technology and human rights law and practice. It offers cutting-edge analysis and practical strategies in contexts as diverse as autonomous lethal weapons, climate change technology, the Internet and social media, and water meters. This title is also available as Open Access.
