Our research focuses on the intersection of privacy, civil rights, and the digitization of the offline world.
Historically, surveillance technology has tracked your technology. What happens when surveillance technology tracks your body—not your technology?

What happens when Congress fails to update privacy and civil rights laws for the 21st century? These are the kinds of questions the Center grapples with.
