Watching You, Watching Me: CCTV Surveillance in a Democracy
Wed 9 November 2016, 16:00 – 18:00 GMT
Join us for a debate on the challenges and opportunities of CCTV surveillance.
Surveillance is a contested issue in this age of terrorism. It can be understood as a public good, a threat, or a simple necessity. To discuss some of the implications of state and private surveillance for democratic societies, the UK Surveillance Camera Commissioner, Mr Tony Porter; Dr Ross Bellaby, Sheffield University; and Dr Arne Hintz, Cardiff University, will provide some introducing thoughts before we subsequently open the discussion to the public.
The event is based on an ongoing research project on CCTV, funded by Welsh Crucible, which visualises the extent of CCTV surveillance on the university campus areas of Cardiff University and Swansea University.
