In conversation with Edward Snowden

The European Court of Human Rights’ judgment on the 10 Human Rights Organisations case is imminent. Privacy International sat down with whistleblower Ed Snowden last year to discuss what this case means for surveillance not only in the UK, but around the world. We spoke about mass surveillance, litigation, privacy, proportionality, Tempora and everything in between.


This case was made possible because of Edward Snowden’s disclosures in 2013, and through the combined work of Big Brother Watch, American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International, Bytes for All, Canadian Civil Liberties Association, Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, Irish Council for Civil Liberties, Legal Resources Centre and Liberty.
