A collective of journalists, filmmakers, academics, and communities working from the ground up
Our mission is to monitor the use of surveillance technologies, automation, and the use of Artificial Intelligence to screen, track, and make decisions about people crossing borders, highlighting the far reaching impacts on people’s rights and lives.
A monitor, archive, and platform for critical interrogation of migration and technology
The detention of migrants at the border in every single case. The wrongful deportation of 7,000 foreign students accused of cheating on a language test. Invasive drone surveillance instead of maritime rescue.
What do these examples have in common? In every case, technological experimentation had serious consequences for people’s lives.
Community participation from the ground up
The monitor is an archive and a platform for sharing information provided directly by migrants, refugees, and people on the move.
Our emphasis is on creative, responsible and impactful ways of educating the public, and empowering advocates and public officials on the human rights implications of the situations documented by the monitor.
