The Global Lab: Inequality, Technology, and the Experimental Movement
Welcome to a book launch with Adam Fejerskov and his book "The Global Lab: Inequality, Technology, and the Experimental Movement".
The Global Lab tells the story of a group of organisations and corporations that use low-income countries as live laboratories. It reveals how they experiment with untested technologies, biometric humanitarian solutions, and radical methodologies for social change.
In his book, Adam Fejerskov maps out the political, institutional, and ethical coordinates of new transnational practices of experimentation. Where and how does this movement work? What are the human, philosophical, and political consequences of its ideas and interventions?
Fejerskov`s presentation will be followed by a discussion with Jamie Wintrup and a Q&A.
