Garestier '12 Examines New Technologies of Security, Public Liberties
February 19, 2012
Vermont Law School's Jessica Garestier '12 recently published a book titled "New Technologies of Security and Public Liberties: An Export Control?"
The book, which was published in France, was her thesis for her Master in Ethics and Business Law degree from the University of Cergy-Pontoise.
"While new information technologies have a safety and security purpose, such as closed caption television and cybermonitoring, the potential for infringement of the users' individual public liberties are significant," Garestier wrote. "Does the power of those technologies, created to meet security goals, justify a control of exportations of these new civil weapons?"
Vermont Law School offers three dual degree options with the University of Cergy-Pontoise, a prestigious law school ranked third in France by the French Ministry of Education and first in Paris and suburbs by l'Etudiant, the leading student magazine in France.
