b. What practices and agendas of online and digital activism are being developed in response to the Snowden leaks?
The project 1) generated and collected data on public knowledge within the UK regarding online surveillance from both ordinary citizens and political activists; and 2) reviewed and analysed responses to online surveillance amongst civil society groups and non-digital activists with regards to communication practices.
