Edward Snowden’s leaks about the US’s international mass surveillance programmes has prompted perhaps the definitive debate of our age: How free are we online? Can we ever trust technology with our personal details?

Have democratic freedoms been subverted by surveillance programmes such as PRISM and Tempora, justified on the grounds of security?

Join Index on Censorship and Doughty Street Chambers on 25 July to discuss these issues and more.

Charles Arthur (Technology Editor, the Guardian)

Stephen Cragg, QC (Doughty Street Chambers)

Kirsty Hughes (Chief Executive, Index on Censorship)
