Removing Safe Spaces: Terrorism, Communication and International Human Rights

21st Century technology is continually evolving. In this increasingly complex and globalised digital world, the UK and the EU have difficulties fashioning laws to protect an individual’s digital privacy whilst simultaneously obtaining data to prevent an act of terrorism. Balancing the public interest with privacy in using “big data” is one of the most controversial issues facing the UK and EU in this digital age.

With expert speakers, this one-day research conference hosted by Leeds Law School will cover terrorism, digital surveillance, policing, computing, internet and social media, 'chat app' encryption, international human rights, international intelligence exchange and preventative counterterrorism measures.

With only 60 tickets available for this conference, please book early to avoid disappointment.

Refreshments, breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Presenters include:

Keynote: Lord Carlile of Berriew QC CBE

Professor Dr Christian Kaunert, University of South Wales

Dr David Lowe, Ex Special Branch Counterterrorism Consultant

SO15 Counter-Terrorism Command

Dr Julian Richards, University of Buckinghamshire

Dr Simon Hale-Ross, Leeds Beckett University

Dr Steve Wright, Leeds Beckett University
