Snooper’s Second Chance: The UK Surveillance Bill

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In November 2015, The UK government published the draft Investigatory Powers Bill, a new piece of legislation to govern the use and oversight of surveillance by law enforcement and the security and intelligence agencies.

There is much in the Bill that will have huge implications for privacy, and three recent reports by Parliamentary bodies have expressed concerns that the Bill needs more thought. This session will outline some of the local and global implications of the Bill that are most concerning and share some of the campaigning around it in the UK, including the Don't Spy on Us coalition. The session will also draw on lessons learned from those involved in the surveillance debate in the US and other countries.
