TAB-Talk: A political account of Privacy

Thu 9 March, 16:00, Cover room

Privacy from a personal standpoint is often very simple and very binary: You either have nothing to hide, or it is none of their business! But we do expect the government to keep us safe. Should they be exempted and be given access? And what are the consequences of such broad access for our democracy?

Titus Stahl is an Assistant Professor at the faculty of Philosophy at the RUG, focussed on political and social philosophy. He has a specific interest in communication privacy. Use PGP if you want to email him.
