Gender, Technology and Law Sessions October - December 2020

  • October 12, 2020

[Series of sessions] The Gender, Technology & Law initiative is happy to announce a new series of online sessions to take place in October, November and December 2020.

The Gender, Technology & Law Sessions are a collaborative initiative of the Law, Science, Technology and Society Research Group (LSTS) and the Fundamental Rights Centre (FRC) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The initiative aims at investigating the intersections between gender, technology and law through an interdisciplinary approach. Outcomes of these investigations but also more explorative debates and open questions are presented in a series of seminars, both by internal and external speakers.

Venue: Online. The platform, together with the link to attend the event, will be communicated to the registered participants in due course.

Registration: The sessions are free to attend but registration is required. To register, please fill in the registration form. Should you face any difficulties with your registration, please send an e-mail to Olga Gkotsopoulou (LSTS) or Carlotta Rigotti (FRC).


The forthcoming cycle consists of three sessions.

Tuesday 27 October 2020, 12:00-13:30 Brussels time

  • Petra Molnar on immigration, Iris-Scanning, and iBorderCTRL: The Human Rights Impacts of Migration Control Technologies

Update: The  'Technological Testing Grounds' report is out now. The publication is based on over 40 conversations with refugees and people on the move and shows that the high risk technological experimentation at the border occurs without adequate governance mechanisms and does not account for the very real impacts on people’s rights and lives. This report is part of a bigger project, the Migration and Tech Monitor. The launch event will take place on 10 November 2020, at 18:00 Brussels time.

Tuesday 24 November 2020, 12:00-13:30 Brussels time

Tuesday 15 December 2020, 12:00-13:30 Brussels time
