Surveillance as Governance

by: Shivangi Narayan

This book is a humble attempt to look at how the needs of ruling bodies for information have led to the development of identification systems across history. It tries to understand how Aadhaar is a break from the older system where the role of ID systems was limited to identifying the beneficiary correctly, and in fact initiates a new era where ID systems would create personalised profiles of beneficiaries to ultimately determine whether they (otherwise eligible) even deserve to avail the said benefits.
