Abstract:In this article, Thérèse Murphy describes her own reaction to New Technologies and Human Rights, Collected Courses of the Academy of European Law vol XVII/2 (OUP, Oxford 2009). She is well-positioned to provide a reaction piece: she contributed a couple of essays to the book and also acted as its editor. Her comments focus on whether 'what works' and 'tooling-up' ought to be deployed as framing devices in human rights work on new and emerging technologies. In sketching the case for, and against, the use of such frames, she covers considerable ground, addressing topics such as human rights activism around technology and contemporary attitudes towards failure.

Stem cell research, cloning, GMOs ... How do regulations effect such emerging technologies? What impact do new technologies have on law? And can we rely on technology itself as a regulatory tool?
The meeting of law and technology is rapidly becoming an increasingly significant (and controversial) topic. Law, Innovation and Technology is, however, the only journal to engage fully with it, setting an innovative and distinctive agenda for lawyers, ethicists and policy makers. Spanning ICTs, biotechnologies, nanotechnologies, neurotechnologies, robotics and AI, it offers a unique forum for the highest level of reflection on this essential area.
