January 23, 2015

Peter Swire will be a featured speaker during the session "Reviewing Intelligence Services, Data Collection and EU/US Relations" at this conference hosted by CPDP. Panel members will include Giovanni Buttarelli, European Data Protection Supervisor, and Jacob Kohnstamm, Article 29 Working Party. It has been over a year since the Snowden revelations and the PRISM scandal. The repercussions of this continue to be felt on both sides of the Atlantic. Accordingly, there has been much political discussion as to what these revelations should mean for the function of intelligence agencies. One element of these discussions has been how U.S. intelligence agencies should behave toward third country nationals. In the EU, concern has naturally been focused on how they should behave towards EU citizens. In response to these debates, there have been a number of political proclamations and quasi-legislative responses. This panel will discuss the current state of affairs and will consider the following questions:

  • Over the last year, what shape has the political and legal response to these revelations taken? 
  • Is this response adequate? 
  • If not, what is missing? 
  • How has it shaped relations between the U.S. and the EU? 
  • How has it practically impacted the behavior of intelligence agencies?
