Foreign Policy Quotes Peter Swire on Renewal of U.S. Surveillance Methods

Against the backdrop of a June 1 deadline for Congress to renew, revise or retire U.S. post-9/11 surveillance methods – and Europe’s interest in the decision – Peter Swire, Georgia Institute of Technology professor and senior counsel in the firm’s Privacy & Data Security Practice, noted that European leaders want as many civil liberties protections from surveillance for their publics as will be given to Americans.

“From the European point of view, they want assurances that their citizens will be treated the same way as U.S. citizens and that their citizens shouldn’t be subjected to surveillance,” Swire said.
