Journalists and Whistleblowers in the Era of Mass State Surveillance

Central European University Nador u. 9, Budapest, Hungary

The disclosures of mass surveillance by the NSA and other security agencies by the whistleblower Edward Snowden have been met with a sense of outrage, particularly outside the United States, principally on the grounds of the human right to privacy. Yet the nature and degree of the mass surveillance that has been exposed as well as states’ responses to the publication of the revelations by the Guardian and other newspapers have also impacted upon freedom of expression, particularly that of journalists, as well as of the public at large. This event will ask a number of questions concerning the rights of journalists and whistleblowers in the face of states’ reliance on national security based arguments to justify their mass surveillance programmes.
