Abstract

"Fingerprints mediate different entry-exit points, from Apple iPhones to visa offices; these objects regulate our interactions with devices and people. The World Bank and International Monetary Fund advocate fingerprinting technology as an enabler for reformation of governance and progress in economy. From a socio-physical marker for criminal and legal statuses, how have people come to accept fingerprints for transacting with the state for receiving their welfare distribution?"
