This invitational workshop will bring together surveillance/privacy advocates and academics to review the status of current policy issues related to surveillance in Canada and to consider possible courses of action. The two primary topics for discussion will be:
- The current “lawful access” debate in Canada
- The Canada-U.S. “Beyond the Border” $1-billion perimeter security pact
A secondary purpose of the workshop is to help the Computers, Freedom and Privacy (CFP) conference broaden participation in its discussions and activities, including proposing speakers and topics for CFP 2013, to be held in Washington, DC.
The workshop will also preview the New Transparency’s Politics of Surveillance Internship Program – designed to connect students via a short-term internship with an advocacy organization to work on surveillance-related projects
Workshop Schedule: Friday, November 9, 2012 | 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM
