Social Sciences at the University of Southampton will be hosting a fascinating public panel debate as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences. Entitled “Information privacy in the internet age”, academic experts from the fields of Criminology, Computer Science and Politics will be joined by Paul Barton, Detective Superintendent of Hampshire Constabulary, and Renate Simpson, CEO of Big Brother Watch, to debate issues around information privacy in current times. Panellists and audience alike will be asked to consider and discuss subjects including data sharing, surveillance states, adequacy of safeguards, and civil liberties. Who is watching, how are they watching and to what extent are they watching? Please do come along and find out.
This event will start at 18:30 and take place in the Nuffield Theatre Cafe/Performance space on our Highfield Campus at the University of Southampton.
