I will be hosting ESRC funded major seminar on Privacy and Surveillance at Brunel on Wednesday.
Media Agenda-Building, National Security, Trust & Forced Transparency
Seminar 3 in the DATA PSST! series
How, when secretive intelligence methods are made public, as with Snowden’s (2013) revelations, do governments respond to maintain public trust? Led by Journalism and Security theorists and practitioners, we will explore state attempts to manage public and political opinion of secretive national security and intelligence surveillance methods; and examine implications of forced transparency for whistle-blowers, journalists, debate on national security issues, and trust in government agencies. Brunel all day July 8.
Led by Dr Vian Bakir and Paul Lashmar.
