Transparency and Surveillance as Sociotechnical Accountability

Короткое описание книги

Surveillance and transparency are both significant and increasingly pervasive activities in neoliberal societies.

Surveillance is taken up as a means to achieving security and efficiency; transparency is seen as a mechanism for ensuring compliance or promoting informed consumerism and informed citizenship.

Indeed, transparency is often seen as the antidote to the threats and fears of surveillance.

This book adopts a novel approach in examining surveillance practices and transparency practices together as parallel systems of accountability.

It presents the house of mirrors as a new framework for understanding surveillance and transparency practices instrumented with information technology.

The volume centers around five case studies: Campaign Finance Disclosure, Secure Flight, American Red Cross, Google, and Facebook.

A series of themed chapters draw on the material and provide cross-case analysis.

The volume ends with a chapter on policy implications.
