r0g_agency Migrant Media Network initiative
In this session, we revisited a topic we came across while running the migrant media network project: a discussion about migration, technology, border control, and migration and technology in general. Due to the perceived or real increase in complexity of migration, governments are increasingly turning to emerge technologies for solutions.
These technologies come with promises of effectiveness, efficiency, fairness, and protection. The questions, however, that need to be asked are:
- Can technology be neutral?
- Does it impact people from different backgrounds equally?
- How do fairness and protection work in a society marked by great inequality?
