Description
Editor's note from Amba Kak:

"Amid heightened public scrutiny, interest in regulating biometric technologies has grown across the globe. Public advocacy has driven this scrutiny across globally dispersed and distinctive local political contexts. Common across these diverse movements is a growing sense that these technologies are no longer inevitable, accompanied by questions as to whether they are necessary at all. Advocates continue to remind developers, profiteers, and those using and regulating these biometric systems that the future course of these technologies must—and will—be subject to greater democratic control. The next few years are poised to produce wideranging legal regulation in many parts of the world that could alter the future course of these technologies. Addressing this moment of possibility, this compendium presents eight case studies from academics, advocates, and policy experts offering a variety of perspectives and national contexts. These expert contributors illuminate existing attempts to regulate biometric systems, and reflect on the promise, and the limits, of the law."
