Please join the Schmidt Program on Artificial Intelligence at the Yale Jackson School of Global Affairs for a panel on digital rights protection in times of war and humanitarian crisis. The event is co-sponsored by the Yale Journal of Law & Technology and the Yale Journal of International Law.

The panel will include Asaf Lubin of Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law, whose research centers around the intersection of law, technology, and international security. Lubin will discuss the increasing risks generated by the recent embrace by international courts and organizations of privacy-invasive technologies and also put a spotlight on the illiberal and data colonialist trends centered at the heart of otherwise well-intentioned datafication projects.

David Simon, assistant dean for graduate education at the Jackson School, will serve as the discussant. Artur Pericles L. Monteiro, lecturer in global affairs and Schmidt Visiting Scholar at Jackson, will moderate.

This event is open to the Yale community. Food will be served. Please register in advance.
