Event Details

Presented by the Center for Internet and Society

Social media and mobile devices enable crimes to be documented and viewed as they happen or shortly thereafter. This technology creates jurisdictional and authenticity challenges but also opportunities for individuals who are not physically present to become aware of emergencies and to provide assistance. This presentation—and its related forthcoming article—will explore some of these situations and consider affirmative duties third parties should shoulder in those contexts.
