YPDP and the U.S. Mission to the EU hosted a breakfast roundtable discussion on U.S. surveillance reform with Alex Joel (Civil Liberties Protection Officer, U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence) on 28th January at the U.S. Mission to the EU.
Mr Joel’s explained how his office ensures that the protection of privacy and civil liberties is appropriately incorporated in the U.S. Intelligence Community. Participants had a lot of questions and we had a lively discussion which also discussed the how many European Member States are enacting new surveillance laws in response to the threat from terrorism.
