The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), characterized by the growing utilization of new technologies, unquestionably is ushering in innovative solutions to myriad development challenges. At the same time, as the authors of Human Rights and the Fourth Industrial Revolution in South Africa demonstrate, these new technologies can also come with drawbacks, particularly in relation to fundamental human rights.

This groundbreaking book explores the full gamut of 4IR human rights implications in South Africa, reviews current and emerging regulatory frameworks, and offers practical recommendations for the way forward.
