Data Wars

Data Wars is a three-year research project which investigates new spaces of governing in the war on terror. The project analyses the ways in which the mobility of people and the mobility of money are being governed in the war on terror, and aims to understand how commercial data – including financial records and passenger information – become used for security decisions in Europe. Data Wars also examines the wider social and political implications of these security developments.

The Data Wars project has teams in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Durham, UK and is funded under the ESRC – NWO bilateral agreement.
