Workshop: Exploring the cashless society

Exploring the cashless society: Money, security, technology, value(s).
Peace Research Institute Oslo, 12-13 February.

We are supporting a closed workshop later this month in Oslo, organised by Nina Boy and funded by the Nordic Centre for Security Technologies and Societal Values (NordSTEVA), in association with the SOURCE Societal Security Network and The Kasbah Hub.

This workshop aims to identify the most pressing questions and problematics that confront us in the emerging cashless society, with a focus on new relations between money and security. Understanding the full implications of this configuration calls on the expertise of data science, security technology, surveillance studies, digital economy, political economy, political philosophy and ethics. The workshop poses the question whether the task of managing the evolution of the cashless society in the best public interest raises the stakes of the need to define and work on a genuinely interdisciplinary problem-space and methodology.

Workshop participants include Nina Boy, Mareile Kaufmann, Kristoffer Liden, Sikander Lhote, Tobias Pforr, Brett Scott, Nathaniel Tkacz,  and Meropi Tzanetakis. The full workshop programme is available here.
