Description

On September 28th-29th, Freedom Research Association will host an International Conference on Mass Surveillance Technologies and the Future of Liberal Democracy, taking place at the scenic Marmara Hotel, Taksim, Istanbul; a weekend-long conference in Istanbul bringing together leading academics, lawyers, legislators, and policy analysts from Turkey and around the world to discuss the increased employment of mass surveillance technologies specifically by the authoritarian governments and the implications on the future of liberal democracy.

The purpose of the conference is to generate international media attention to the recent problems in Turkey in terms of the rule of law, especially relating to fundamental rights and judicial independence. The discussions at the conference will focus on today’s major challenges and how rule of law can be strengthened in Turkey. A special emphasis will be made on the recent developments in China and the upcoming social credit system that is expected to enter into full force in 2020.
