Tocqueville 21 Podcast: Digital Human Rights and Cybersecurity with Susan Perry
We’re happy to present the sixth episode of the Tocqueville 21 podcast! This week, we continue our short series examining Francis Fukuyama’s notion of the End of History. We are joined today by Professor Susan Perry of the American University of Paris. Our discussion winds its way through many fascinating topics, from the end of the Afghan war to the cybersecurity landscape, the rise of China and the future of the European Union.
Doctor Susan Perry is a specialist in international human rights law and digital technology and teaches law and politics at The American University of Paris, as well as directing several of the University’s graduate programs. Dr. Perry’s work focuses on vulnerable populations – women, children and communities in conflict – whose rights are being violated by the State, society or industry, often in breach of binding legal conventions.
Dr. Perry has collaborated on several projects funded by the European Commission, and she is currently an Advisory Board member of SHERPA, a Horizon 2020 European Commission grant on the ethical use of artificial intelligence in Europe.
Her most recent books analyze the nexus between digital technology, human rights and deliberative democracy: Illusion Pixel in French (Lemieux Editions 2015); Human Rights and Digital Technology (Palgrave 2017); and a third project under way on the digital divide in education.
