Since the 1990s, a new dimension has been included in European Research & Development projects. We refer here to the need to address the ethical, legal and social issues raised by technological innovation and scientific research. It is of course the case of surveillance and security technologies projects. Human scientists are involved in these projects in order to examine its “social acceptability”. However, this mandate can be understood in different ways.

Very different approach can be developed to assess the social acceptability of surveillance technologies. The objective of the seminar is to better define the mandate and role of ethics and humanities in surveillance and security technologies projects. The seminar will be divided into 3 parts. In a first theoretical step, we will try to identify different paradigms of the evaluation of social acceptability of surveillance technology and identify strengths and weaknesses of each of these paradigms. In a second step, a round table will be organized around the question of the expectations of political and industrial actors about the ethics of surveillance technologies. Finally, the last time will be devoted to the consideration of particular ethical issues raised by surveillance technologies.

This workshop will be organized jointly with the IPATCH, P5 and PARIS projects. The motivation to organize a joint seminar is to enable cross-fertilization and mutual learning between ethical research in these projects. The seminar is expected to carry a reflective perspective on the ethics work already done in these projects.

1)      What means assessing the social acceptability of surveillance technologies?

What are the different paradigms of the evaluation of the social acceptability of surveillance technologies ? Evolution and criticism of the paradigms.

2)     The issue of expectations of political and industrial actors.

What political and industrial actors expect from the intervention of ethics and humanities ? Are these expectations the same as those of Human Scientists and legal researchers ?

3)     Cases studies

What are the major ethical issues raised in each of the three projects? How to address these issues?
