IRISS workshop on Surveillance and Democracy (2014) 

in Sheffield, UK; June 24-25 2014

The workshop presented the findings of the empirical work packages of the IRISS project and sought to generate analysis, reflections and debate from a wide cross-section of interested parties. The attendees included members of the IRISS consortium and a number of external participants drawn from regulatory bodies, NGO representatives, academics and practitioners.

The workshop began with a key note from David Davis, MP during which he outlined his thoughts on surveillance and democracy. This was followed by a panel discussion on the findings which emerged from WP5 of the IRISS project which examined the exercise of  access rights. This session included a discussion on the policy implications of the findings.

The empirical results of WP3 and WP4 were also presented thereafter and panelists offered their reflections on the findings. Finally, a panel discussion was held on the work conducted during WP6 which concerns resilience in surveillance societies and an interesting debate on this issue ensued.
