The purpose of these edited books is to examine the technological and
ethical trends and prospective challenges that will reshape the social
use of digital technologies in Latin America. How will ethical and legal
frameworks have to evolve to respond to novel issues and critical
challenges in the region, ranging from virtual harassment, bullying and
sexting incidents posted on YouTube, dating app user privacy,
information on members of criminal organizations disseminated on social
media, political activism and governmental censorship, in addition to
the introduction of robotics and AI, cyberwar, the rise of fake news and
alternative facts, the digital economy, cryptocurrencies and other key
topics. The two volumes are complementary, since they embrace two
distinct aspects of the common process of the rise and spread of digital
technologies in Latin America. The first volume, *Data **Protection,
Homeland Security and Labor Market in the XXI century,* focuses on
governmental, economic and security issues. The object is to cover two
main issues: (a) how public institutions and corporations face ethical
and legal critical complexities related with data protection, privacy,
the irruption artificial intelligence (AI) and robots into the labor
market; and (b) to find a proper balance in between security and human
rights, and in particular the way in which public institutions should
incorporate technologies like drones and autonomous weapons systems to
combat criminality while respecting constitutional civil rights. The
second volume, *The **Politics of Technology in Latin America /Vol 2.
/Digital Media, Daily Life and Public Engagement *focuses on the
hyper-medialization of the region from the citizen perspective. It
focuses on critical topics related to the use of digital media in the
private sphere: (a) human relations, social media and students,
migration, the use of domestic drones, and (b) digital media and its
impact on news production, including critical issues like the corporate
integrity of major media players and the production of fake news, and
how digital technologies serve as spaces for political and civil engagement.
