Graduate Research Assistant: Technology and Democracy White Paper Series
The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics and the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy are partnering to develop a white paper series on technology, democracy, and human rights. Over the coming months and years, the series will produce policy-oriented papers, co-authored by scholars and practitioners, about how technology is changing the pursuit of democratic renewal and the protection of human rights.  

We are seeking a graduate student to help organize, develop, and research/co-author white papers in the series. We will begin by focusing on the ethics and policy questions surrounding two topics: the use of predictive tools in policing and the criminal justice system, and the use of data in educational environments. We are seeking someone who can help identify the salient theoretical and practical questions in these domains and identify and convene practitioners, policy experts, and scholars who can work together to answer those questions.
