18:00 – 19:15 – THE “FOURTH ESTATE” IN THE “STATE OF SURVEILLANCE”

The publication of the Snowden files by The Guardian has shown how governments are using mass surveillance in a systematic, indiscriminate and unlawful way. Mass surveillance is, on one hand, eroding the role of the watchdogs and, on the other, highlighting the importance of whistleblowing. Journalists now have to find new ways and methods to safeguard their work and function. The aim of the parallel session is to discuss the role of journalism in a mass surveillance scenario.
