FIPR's 20th Birthday

May 29, 2018
Computer Laboratory
Cambridge

The Foundation for Information Policy Research was launched on May 29th 1998 in the run-up to the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act. It's time to celebrate twenty years of public service and discuss what the future might hold. We will ask both speakers and audience members: what's changed, what's stayed the same, and what's next?

In addition to organising conferences on surveillance, FIPR has worked on many topics around privacy, digital rights and cybercrime. Our first decade's achievements included significant amendments to surveillance and export control laws and the foundation of EDRi. Landmark publications from our second decade include Children's Databases, Security Economics and the EU, Database State, Resilience of the Internet Interconnection Ecosystem, Taking down websites to prevent crime, and the EU IoT report.
