Technology and Security takes forward the existing state of academic understanding where security and technology intersect. It assesses the challenges posed by emerging scientific and technological developments for security while understanding how perceptions of security threats are themselves formed in relation to conceptions of science and technology.
BRIAN RAPPERT is an Associate Professor of Science, Technology and Public Affairs in the Department of Sociology & Philosophy at the University of Exeter, UK. His long term interest has been the examination of how choices can and are made about the regulation of technologies in conditions of uncertainty and disagreement.
