The NSA files: surveillance, leaks and the new landscape of legitimacy

Project Description:

“This project analyses the global public discourse initiated by the so called NSA-Snowden leaks (unfolding since June 2013). By looking at how journalists and other public stakeholders (states, corporations, politicians, civic activists) in different parts of the world reacted to the case, the project will map how this debate redefines key concepts of democratic governance and legitimation such as privacy, citizenship, trust, free speech and trust in the rapidly changing digital environment.”
