Biometric Surveillance, Immigration, and Labor Virtual Symposium

 

The UC Merced Community and Labor Center is hosting a public-facing virtual symposium addressing the use of biometric technologies in immigration and labor contexts.

Featuring national and regional experts, and with a focus on California’s Central Valley, this virtual symposium will provide public education on how biometric surveillance technologies—such as facial recognition, fingerprints, and more—are being used in spaces such as interior immigration enforcement and workplaces where low-wage, immigrant workers are employed. We will also consider the possible role states like California might play in regulating the use of biometric technologies in immigration and labor contexts.

The goal of this symposium is to raise awareness and inform policy conversations about the ethics and equity issues behind biometric governance.
