Open Surveillance?

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

Open Government created a global movement using public data to create a better world. Snowden's revelations about the role of NSA and other agencies spying on citizens came as a shock to the international open government community. How should we address illegal surveillance from an open government perspective? How should the open government community react to threats to privacy and other fundamental human rights? How do we address address issues related to data traffic and surveillance? This session will explore ethical, normative and empirical approaches to secure fundamental human rights in an age of open government and open data.The session aims to address a usually ignored yet crucial issue about human rights, open data and surveillance.

Session hashtag: #okfestprivacy



This session was co-created by members of the Personal Data and Privacy Open Knowledge Working Group. This session remains editorially independent as it was put together in consultation with the Programme Team following the same guidelines as for other sessions at the festival.
