Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Examination of the presuppositions that found contemporary scientific writings on biometric technologies - racialised effects of biometric technologies - effectiveness of biometrics in certain ethnic or 'non-white' groups - argues that particular biometric technologies are calibrated to 'whiteness' - biometric technologies and the 'war on terror' - argues that Australia's new counter-terrorism laws are predicated on racially profiling Australia's Arab and/or Muslim citizens.
