A dialogue on Human Rights and Surveillance hosted by the International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations (INCLO), in partnership with the Legal Resources Centre (LRC).


The Legal Resources Centre, on behalf of the International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations (INCLO), will be hosting a public event titled “Privacy Rights, Surveillance Wrongs: An Activists’ Dialogue” at the Women’s Gaol in Johannesburg on 31 October 2016.

The full-day event will bring together leading lawyers, privacy activists and policy experts from around the world to look at the impact of surveillance on fundamental rights, such as the rights to dignity, privacy and freedom of expression. This includes a discussion between iconic whistle-blower Edward Snowden and anti-apartheid activist Kumi Naidoo, as well as the launch of the INCLO report on surveillance.

During this time, we aim to explore opportunities to promote the right to privacy and to strengthen the oversight of surveillance activities; to consider perspectives from the global south; and to foster greater international collaboration and dialogue on the challenges posed by surveillance.
