Brookings to Host Panel on NSA Surveillance

The recent news of the NSA’s secret surveillance programs have raised many questions about Internet governance and the balance of privacy rights and national security.

An event reporters may want to attend? The Center for Technology Innovation at the Brookings Institution will host a panel discussion on June 20 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to discuss the impact that the recent exposure of Internet surveillance programs could have on open global discussion. Moderated by Allan Friedman, a fellow at the Brookings Institution, the panel will include Stephen Crocker, board chair for Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, Director of Internet Freedom and Human Rights Project Gene Kimmelman and Jason Healy, director of Cyber Statecraft Initiative.

To attend the event, RSVP here.

If you can’t make this one, Brookings will host another event on social media next week.

That discussion will be from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. on June 26 and will feature Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, who will discuss his vision for the company, which manages over a billion Tweets every two days. Along with moderator Jonathan Rauch, Costolo will also touch on freedom of expression and Twitter’s role in the news cycle.

For those who can’t attend, the event will be streamed live on the web, which you can register for here. Those who can attend in person should register here.

The discussion can also be followed, appropriately, on Twitter using the hashtag #TwitterCEO.
