Digital Citizenship and Surveillance Society
For the past 18 months the research project 'Digital Citizenship and Surveillance Society: UK State-Media-Citizen Relations After the Snowden Leaks' has investigated the consequences of the Snowden revelations. We will hold a workshop in London on Monday 27th June to present findings of our research and discuss their implications.
12:30 Arrival and registration
1-2pm - Presentation of project findings
2:30-5:30pm - Workshops to discuss implications and next steps:
- Journalism and news media: What are the challenges for journalist work and for covering surveillance?
- Civil society activism: How do we advance data justice?
- Policy reform: The Investigatory Powers Bill and beyond - What should the policy framework be?
- Technology: What are the prospects of tools and standards development?
The event will bring together scholars, activists, technologists, policymakers, and other experts. It will continue the productive debates from last year's conference 'Surveillance and Citizenship' (http://www.dcssproject.net/conference/), and it will serve to discuss future steps and projects regarding research, policy reform, technological development, etc.
The workshop will take place at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, One Birdcage Walk (http://www.onebirdcagewalk.com/) in London (Westminster).
