A dialogue on Human Rights and Surveillance hosted by the International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations (INCLO), in partnership with the Legal Resources Centre
We invite you to participate in INCLO’s convening on State Surveillance & Human Rights hosted in Johannesburg by the Legal Resources Centre on 31 October 2016.
The event will bring together leading lawyers, privacy activists and policy experts from across the world to look at the pressing challenges created by state surveillance and the opportunities which could be pursued to promote the right to privacy and the oversight of surveillance activities.
With the aims of including perspectives from the Global South and fostering greater international collaborative dialogue on the challenge of surveillance, the convening will feature talks with leading experts and activists fighting for Privacy Rights, including a key note conversation between anti-Apartheid Activist Kumi Naidoo and iconic whistle-blower Edward Snowden.
The convening will be hosted at the historic Women’s Gaol at the Constitutional Hill complex and will provide an opportunity to discuss ways of challenging State surveillance at the domestic and international level with particular attention given to the right of encryption and the impact that surveillance is having on developing states.
There are limited spaces so please RSVP as soon as possible.
