> Torture & ‘Security’ Agencies in the ‘War on Terror’
> Recent revelations and allegations about extra-ordinary rendition suggest complicity by European governments in ‘torture flights’. Such involvement has precedents in British and American foreign policy, dating back to their involvement in Afghanistan and the former Yugoslavia. Today the problem goes far beyond torture flights: ‘security’ agencies in Europe have a broader complicity in global torture through cooperation with repressive regimes, e.g. by exchanging information on dissidents, deporting them to torture, using the consequent ‘information’ to intern or prosecute individuals in Europe, etc. In some cases these agencies are targeting movements which were previously encouraged as means to counter Left or nationalist politics, before the ‘blow-back’ led to violent attacks in Europe.

> Crime, Justice and Surveillance
> In the UK the last decade has seen an unprecedented deployment of surveillance technologies and practices in the name of crime control. Drug testing, electronic monitoring, intelligence led policing initiatives, DNA testing and video monitoring have all expanded rapidly. These developments are not unique to the UK, and this conference seeks to explore the British experience in the context of developments in Europe and beyond and to consider the social, political and legal issues that arise from the expansion of surveillance. The conference is inter-disciplinary with contributions from sociologists, anthropologists, geographers, criminologists, socio-legal scholars, historians, and social scientists researching surveillance practices and technologies.
