Law Enforcement Technologies: The Realm of Facial Recognition

Conference

GREDEG - Université côte d'azur - CNRS

March 13 & 14, 2025
 

This symposium will explore the regulatory framework of facial recognition and the challenges posed by law enforcement's deployment of this technology in three distinct phases. The first part delves into normative dynamics: what underlies them, accelerates them, and contributes to their institutionalization in public spaces. The second provides a legislative overview within Europe – at the national and regional levels – and offers a comparative perspective with North America. Lastly, the third part opens up perspectives by offering various reflections on the future of surveillance technologies.
