Event: Equality – the new frontier of Internet privacy rights
Since the revelations of Edward Snowden, civil society has struggled to articulate a clear, united and international response. The typical approach taken has been to re-iterate the 13 Principles (“Necessary and Proportionate”) developed before Snowden’s revelations and call for an end to mass-surveillance.
Curiously there has still been scant focus on explicit discrimination strictly according to nationality in some nations’ laws. Unlike the faux-threat of “Balkanisation” (meaning localisation of data – the only effective defense against foreign spying on Cloud computing), discrimination of rights by nationality would really break the Internet. As a result we’ve decided to organise this event:
Equality: the new frontier of Internet privacy rights
Caspar Bowden & Ben Wagner
