Description

Dr. Brian Krueger, Associate Professor, Political Science. Generally speaking, polls have shown that concerns about government intrusion into personal privacy have risen over the last decade. Although the U. S. public was willing to expand the investigative powers of government in the aftermath of the surprise attacks on September 11, 2001, the U. S. government may differ with its citizens on whether law enforcement has properly used its surveillance powers in the wake of the Edward Snowden revelations. This workshop clarifies the views of the U. S. public on the forms of surveillance that are acceptable, the types of abuse that may occur, and the circumstances under which collective and individual interests may outweigh each other.
