Date et heure:

Other- name of organisation: 
Foundation for Media Alternatives (FMA) in cooperation with Privacy International (PI) and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

Emergent technologies and shifting legal frameworks are evolving both opportunities and threats for citizens and communities in a post-9/11 world. As policy frameworks in the Philippines and in Asia are being developed in the areas of data privacy, state access to personal information, cybercrime/cybersecurity, and freedom of information, this forum seeks to locate a public interest perspective that will protect citizens and communities from increasingly problematic surveillance societies.
