Workshop "Intelligence Oversight : Is Human Rights-Preserving Surveillance Possible?"

on the November 14, 2017

Thursday 14 November 2017, 8:30-18:00
The Grenoble Alpes Data Institute is organizing a workshop on Intelligence Oversight the 14th November 2017 in INRIA, Montbonnot (Grenoble).
Affiche Surveillance
The workshop will bring together lawyers, ICT experts, other privacy and human rights experts, journalists and members of civil society. Its objective will be to proceed to an assessment of the different domestic surveillance laws (starting with the French intelligence laws) and to examine their compatibility with European and international requirements and, most importantly, the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union. Overall, this workshop will attempt to reflect on the balance to strike between the need to protect the national security of States through, inter alia, the use of effective intelligence techniques and the need to submit intelligence services to adequate oversight and control in order to respect human rights and the rule of law.

The conference will take place in French and English, but no translation will be provided.

The event is organized by professors Theodore Christakis (Université Grenoble Alpes/Institut Universitaire de France), Serge Slama (Université Grenoble Alpes), and research director Claude Castelluccia (INRIA) within the framework of Work-Package 5 on “Data Governance, Data Protection and Privacy” of the Grenoble Alpes Data Institute.

Inscription obligatoire avant le 31 octobre.
