From border control practices, to the use of facial recognition technologies in the streets; a wide variety of security practices can be used – or misused - by governments to prevent terrorism. What do you know about these technologies? 

Join us on Friday 23 October, 14.00 - 15.00 CET, for a free online lecture and virtual tour to find out how Big Data is used to prevent terrorism, and how it could be used in the future. 

This online lecture will give you a concrete understanding of current and future surveillance practices. We will guide you through interactive activities so you can find out how big data in counter-terrorism is being used, and what the legal constraints are. 

The event will be led by Asser researchers Rebecca Mignot-Mahdavi and Dr Dimitri van den Meerssche
