Digital Surveillance video

The Digital Surveillance report – to be launched at a public event on Monday – gives a history of surveillance policy, looks at the current state of the law, examines why technology poses a problem and offers alternative, more targeted and more accountable approaches.

The report demonstrates that surveillance policy makers have options that are significantly less intrusive than the powers proposed in the Snoopers’ Charter. It is written for a general audience by leading experts, academics and representatives of a number of civil society groups, with a series of concrete recommendations for policy makers.
