Activity: OtherPublic engagement, outreach and knowledge exchange - Public Lecture/debate/seminar


Presented a paper titled, 'The Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Act 2024, "Low or no Reasonable Expectation of Privacy" Bulk Personal Datasets and the Jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights', which analysed the regulation of the UK state surveillance capabilities through the Investigatory Powers Act 2016 and the recent reforms introduced to that legislation set out in the Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Act 2024 ((IP(A)A'24)). The presentation focused on s. 226A IP(A)A'24, which allows intelligence and law enforcement services to compile bulk personal datasets (BPDs) where the intelligence agency deems that the information in question involves 'low or no reasonable expectation of privacy' in the gathered data and assessed the compatibility of this new legislative standard with the requirements to protect and respect individuals' rights to privacy and data protection under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 and the CoE Convention for the Protection of Individuals with Regard to the Processing of Personal Data (Convention 108+).
