10th - 14th February, Middleton Hall at the University of Hull

ERCS Project

This festival has been kindly sponsored by the ‘Common Good: Ethics and Right in Cyber Security’ ESRC research project at the University of Hull.

‘The Common Good: Ethics and Rights in Cyber Security’ (ERCS) project seeks to understand where the balance lies between security and ethics in digital governance. If the recent controversies of U.S governmental surveillance and implicated technology companies demonstrated anything, it is the need for proportionate, just and effective cyber security in digital governance that is committed to the common good. This research project takes a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together experts in the fields of social science, security studies, intelligence studies, cultural studies, political philosophy, public policy and institutional ethics. With such a range of disciplines represented, the project is ideally placed to provide a balanced analysis of the subject, ensuring that governance, security, rights and ethics are all taken account of.
