Digital Citizenship and Surveillance Society
London, 27 June, 1 pm

For the past 18 months the research project 'Digital Citizenship and  
Surveillance Society: UK State-Media-Citizen Relations After the  
Snowden Leaks' has investigated the consequences of the Snowden  
revelations. We will hold a workshop in London on Monday 27th June to  
present findings of our research and discuss their implications.

Digital Citizenship and Surveillance Society
12:30 Arrival and registration
1-2pm - Presentation of project findings
2:30-5:30pm - Workshops to discuss implications and next steps:
- Journalism and news media: What are the challenges for journalist  
work and for covering surveillance?
- Civil society activism: How do we advance data justice?
- Policy reform: The Investigatory Powers Bill and beyond - What  
should the policy framework be?
- Technology: What are the prospects of tools and standards development?

The event will bring together scholars, activists, technologists,  
policymakers, and other experts. It will continue the productive  
debates from last year's conference 'Surveillance and Citizenship'  
(http://www.dcssproject.net/conference/), and it will serve to discuss  
future steps and projects regarding research, policy reform,  
technological development, etc.

The workshop will take place at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers,  
One Birdcage Walk (http://www.onebirdcagewalk.com/) in London  
(Westminster). More information on the venue and how to get to there
