Given the explosive revelations made by Edward Snowden, there is greater public awareness of government surveillance and, consequently, calls for more transparency and accountability. The UCT Law Faculty is hosting a panel on this issue.
The panel includes Sir Adrian Fulford, Investigatory Powers Commissioner in the UK; Advocate Pansy Tlakula, South African Information Regulator; Professor Jane Duncan, University of Johannesburg; and Peter Carter QC, whose practice is primarily criminal law. This panel of distinguished experts will provide insights into the UK system or surveillance and the criticisms of the legislation and also the South African experience. The event will be moderated by Justice Dennis Davis.
