What’s Next? Surveillance Reform Post-Snowden

It has been more than a year since Edward Snowden exposed the inner workings of the NSA, setting off an intense national debate about the proper balance between security and privacy. There have been a number of reforms over the past year, including some changes directed by the President, a variety of court decisions – including a recent Supreme Court decision increasing mobile phone privacy, and a number of bills put forward in Congress – the fate of which remains uncertain. But for all the buzz, how much has actually changed? Have we gone too far in our attempts at reform, not far enough, or have we somehow gotten it just right? To explore these questions, the Strauss Center at the University of Texas will host a SXSW Interactive session featuring debate and dialogue between two experts in this area: Professor Bobby Chesney of UT’s Strauss Center, and Hanni Fakhoury of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
