Do I really have a right to the free unhindered development of my personality? Is this what my right to privacy is all about? Is this key to understanding the global version of “The American dream”? Is Silicon Valley helping to nurture such a dream or will it selfishly destroy it? Should Silicon Valley stand up to the US Government? Is it powerless to do so or is it a willing accomplice? These are only some of the many questions that Joe Cannataci will ask – and sometimes answer – as he brings us up to date as to what has been happening with the EU-supported MAPPING initiative which has produced a draft legal instrument on “Surveillance and Privacy” as well as why he advised UN member states to tread carefully when he delivered his latest report to the UN Human Rights Council on 5th March 2018. In a speech that will range from the latest EU approaches to e-evidence to the proposed US CLOUD Act, the UN Special Rapporteur on Privacy will explore the dangers of providing yet another legal basis according US law enforcement and intelligence cross-border snooping rights which potentially undermine the principles of proportionality and necessity required under international law.
