Deirdre K. Mulligan

My current research is focused in three core areas:
1. The identification of and response to “policy-making technology” - providing institutions within society with means for identifying instances where technology is embedding, and sometimes displacing, policy choices and strategies and processes for managing this phenomena consistent with the institutions place in society;

2. The effect of surveillance, dataveillance, and network architecture on norms and policies around privacy, public places, and policing; and

3. Organizational behavior surrounding the conceptualization and institutionalization of privacy, security and trust, and in particular how law influences the understanding and operationalization of these values.
