Centre for Technology, Ethics & Law in Society

Mission

Retro Rocket ToyTELOS' mission is to act as a hub for forward-looking, academically rigorous research that focuses on cutting-edge technologies. The Centre explores questions lying at the interface of law and technological developments that address important social problems arising at the local, national and transnational level and that are relevant, accessible and engaging for students and scholars of all levels, policy-makers and other stakeholders with a direct interest in legitimate technological development and the broader public.

In promoting this mission, TELOS seeks to:

Establish a network of experts, organisations and individuals with particular expertise or interest in new and emerging technologies across a wide range of policy domains in order to promote the exchange of ideas.

Promote, encourage and disseminateresearch concerning the interface between law, regulation and new and emerging technologies that are cross-cutting in nature. This research looks across a wide range of:

  • Legal categories (including environmental law, human rights law, EU law, tort law, transnational law, health law, and public international law)
  • Technologies(including ICT, surveillance, robots, artificial intelligence, genetics, neurotechnology, and nanotechnology)
  • Policydomains (including public safety, domestic and international security, health and medicine, education, the administration of justice, commerce, and urban development).

Provide a forum for debate and deliberation, policy development and a point of contact for media inquiries and public engagement initiatives concerning the legal, ethical and social implications of technological developments  in order actively to foster understanding and critical engagement between academics, students, policy-makers and the public that will contribute to evidence-based, legitimate and effective technology policy.
