Mass surveillance, privacy, and freedom: A case for public access to information about mass government surveillance programs

Bryce Newell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter examines judicial decisions about the legality of mass surveillance in the United States and Europe (at the European Court of Human Rights), and explores how the existence of these programs threatens individual freedom. In doing so, the chapter presents a theory of information access and control based in the neorepublican conception of individual liberty as non-domination.
