Dr Monique Mann
Dr Monique Mann is a Senior Lecturer in Criminology and member of the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation at Deakin University. She is the School of Humanities and Social Sciences Higher Degree Research (HDR) Coordinator and in this role oversees the candidature of over 200 HDR students.
Dr Mann is an internationally recognised interdisciplinary researcher working on new surveillance technologies, their human rights, environmental, and social justice impacts, advocating for improved regulatory governance. She examines the political economy and social impacts of new technologies, relationships of power and influence, and advocates for enhanced protections to advance social justice. Her mixed-methods and theoretically driven approach (qualitative, quantitative, socio-legal) informs critical arguments about new technologies, their impacts for individuals and society, and limits to governing frameworks (i.e., policy, legal, ethical).
Mann translates her research through engagement and advocacy to create impact through outlining concrete ways to improve governance. Dr Mann has contributed to advancing Australia’s national research agenda through her activities not only as an academic and author, but also as an advocate, media commentator, and expert policy advisor. She is Vice Chair of the Australian Privacy Foundation.
