The Future of Spying
Richard Aldrich will be speaking on the salient and topical subject of the future of surveillance. In the wake of the Snowden’s revelations about the mass surveillance efforts of the NSA and GCHQ, will governments continue in this direction?
About our speaker: Richard J. Aldrich is a Professor of International Security at the University of Warwick. His main research interests lie in the area of intelligence and security communities. His most recent book is Spying on the World: The Declassified Documents of the Joint Intelligence Committee, a co-edited volume of documents published by Edinburgh University Press in 2014. Currently he is on research leave completing a co-authored book on intelligence and the UK core executive, 1909-1989. He also maintains related interests in issues of cyber security, liberty and privacy, set against a background of accelerating globalization. These wider interests extend to developments in information technology, including public key cryptography. The technology of secrecy – particularly secure communications – has exerted an important but largely neglected influence upon the conduct of international relations. He has recently completed a history of GCHQ which was published by Harper Collins in an updated paperback format in 2011.
