CALL FOR PAPERS:

TECHNOLOGY, POLICING & EARNING THE PUBLIC TRUST

The Technology, Law & Security (TLS) Program, in partnership with the Criminal Justice Practice & Policy Institute (CJPPI) at the American University Washington College of Law (WCL) and the Journal of National Security Law and Policy (JNSLP) at Georgetown University, is pleased to announce the following call for papers.

The tragic killing of George Floyd and the subsequent wave of mass protests have once again brought to the fore deep-seated concerns about policing, unnecessary and disproportionate uses of force, and unequal justice.  Consistent with our focus on the intersection of technology, law and security, we seek papers addressing the role that technology might play in police and criminal justice restructuring.

These papers will form the inaugural collection of the TLS paper series.  All authors will also be invited to participate in a fall symposium, where they will have an opportunity to present their work; to publish in a special edition of the peer-reviewed Journal of National Security Law and Policy on policing and technology; and to submit for consideration a related 900-1200-word oped/summary for publication in the joint TLS/Slate Policing and Technology Project, to be launched in the coming months.
