Technological Testing Grounds and Surveillance Sandboxes: Migration and Border Technology at the Frontiers

handle is hein.journals/forwa45 and id is 223 raw text is: Technological Testing Grounds
and Surveillance Sandboxes:
Migration and Border
Technology at the Frontiers
Experiments with new technologies in migration management are
increasing. From Big Data predictions about population movements in the
Mediterranean, to Canada's use of automated decision-making in immigra-
tion and refugee applications, to artificial intelligence lie detectors deployed
at European borders, States are keen to explore the use of new technologies, yet
often fail to take into account profound human rights ramifications and real
impacts on human lives.
Our recent report, Technological Testing Grounds: Migration
Management Experiments and Reflections from the Ground Up, which can
be found at: https://edri.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Technological-
Testing-Grounds.pdf, attempts to interrogate the growing panopticon of
surveillance and automation, foregrounding the lived experiences ofpeople on
the move in order to highlight the all-encompassing and unregulated nature of
these technological experiments on the frontiers of the border industrial complex.
We are Black and border guards hate us. Their computers hate us too.
