Ben Wizner gives a keynote speech about what has happened in the two years since the Snowden revelations. He gives four snapshots of the ways in which the security state has lost some of its power and where the public has gained a voice since the Snowden revelations:
1) Courts and judicial review of surveillance and intelligence programmes
2) US Congress and the legislatures
4) The media
This talk was presented at the 2015 conference Surveillance and Citizenship held at Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.
