Adam Molnar’s work focuses on policing and national security as they relate to practices of surveillance, the use of technology, and associated issues of privacy and social control.
Adam recently completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Surveillance Studies Centre at Queen’s University, and attained his PhD in the Department of Political Science at the University of Victoria. Currently, he is a member of Deakin’s Alfred Deakin Research Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation (ADI) and is a Board Member of the Australian Privacy Foundation (APF).
Adam’s research examines how technology-led surveillance strategies are used as a response to crime and terrorism, and assesses the implications for law, privacy, and social control. Adam is currently working on an international project that examines government use of computer network operations (CNOs) and the rule of law in national security and policing.
