Seminar: Privacy and Legalization of a Mass Surveillance: In Search for Resources of International Human Rights Law, Jun 5, 2019

Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice invites you to a seminar with
Dr. Vera Rusinova on the topic of
Privacy and Legalization of a Mass Surveillance: In Search for Resources of International Human Rights Law

When: Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 10:00-12.00 in Meeting Room at
Where: Stockholm centre for commercial law (sccl), Library building, level 6, University Campus Place
Registration (voluntary): scilj@juridicum.su.se, by the 4th of June 2019

The extensive legal literature on surveillance either bemoans the death of privacy in our irrevocably digitalized world, or concentrates on issues of jurisdiction to the detriment of its material scope. This happens against a background of the growing sociologically framed surveillance studies, which tend to declare human rights to be an improper and useless organizing concept in the struggle for privacy. The recent judgements of the ECHR Chambers on the Big Brother Watch and Others v. UK and Centrum för Rättvisa v. Sweden cases, where this court has acknowledged that mass surveillance per se does not violate the Convention on the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, seem to support these pessimistic views. In her talk Vera Rusinova is going to discuss whether there are any internal and external resources of the International human rights regime, which still would be able to alter the situation.

Vera Rusinova is currently Professor of International Law at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow. She received a Doctor of legal sciences (Dr. hab.) degree in Moscow and holds a Master degree from the University of Göttingen. She is a Co-Chair of the International Law Association’s Committee on Use of Force: Military Assistance on Request, a Member of the European Society of International Law, and a Member of the Advisory Council of the Institute for International Peace and Security Law (University of Cologne, Germany). She is also member of the Editorial Groups of ‘International Justice’ and the ‘Journal of International Humanitarian Legal Studies’. She is currently conducting a study entitled ‘Application of  International Law to Cyber Operations: from lex lata to lex ferenda’.

Seminar: The International Legal Principle of Non-Interference and Cyber-Operations: Unjustified Expectations? Jun 4, 2019

Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice invites you to a seminar with
Dr. Vera Rusinova on the topic of
The International Legal Principle of Non-Interference and Cyber-Operations: Unjustified Expectations?

When: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at 15:00-17.00

Registration (voluntary): scilj@juridicum.su.se, by the 3rd of June 2019

The overwhelming majority of the publically known computer network attacks, which are presumed to be attributable to foreign states, do not fall under the legal notion of ‘use of force’. In her talk Vera Rusinova is going to tackle the question of whether and to what extent the principle of non-interference in matters within the domestic jurisdiction, being one of the basic principles of International Law, is applicable and able to effectively deter these ‘low-intensity cyber-operations’. By revisiting the General Assembly resolutions, judgments of the International Court of Justice and analysing recent examples of computer network attacks, she is trying to clarify a regulatory impact of this principle in the realm of cyber-operations.

Seminar with Russel Weaver in Law & Informatics and Public Law, Jun 19, 2019

From Gutenberg to the Internet: Free Speech, Advancing Technology and the Implications for Democracy

When: June 19 at 17-19
Where: The Faculty Room, 8th floor House C, Stockholm University

Professor Russell Weaver, Professor of Law & Distinguished University Scholar University of Louisville, Louis D. Brandeis School of Law is a renowned expert on Privacy and Freedom of Speech, will present his book From Gutenberg to the Internet: Free Speech, Advancing Technology and the Implications for Democracy.

The history of free expression is inextricably intertwined with advances in speech technology. However, until recently, most forms of communication were limited and controlled by so-called “gatekeepers” who had the power to limit or control the ability of ordinary individuals to communicate with each other. With the advent of the Internet and new forms of technology (e.g., personal computers, iPhones, etc.), people have much greater capacity to communicate with each other. Although both governments and private entities have attempted to control discourse over the Internet, new technologies have enabled ordinary individuals to more easily communicate with each other and to participate in the political process. As a result, the Internet is reshaping political debate and political action all over the world. However, this increased ability to communicate comes with potential downsides: “fake news” and the ability for outsiders to attempt to unduly influence foreign elections.

The seminar will be held in English. Refreshments will be served after the seminar.

Welcome with you registration to Jane.Reichel@juridicum.su.se no later than June 16

Ny IVA-rapport: Detta krävs för att öka konkurrenskraften när Sverige digitaliseras

Allt fler av Sveriges centrala samhällsfunktioner använder internet. Därmed ställs helt nya krav på den digitala infrastrukturens kapacitet och säkerhet för att klara konkurrenskraften. Vi måste också bygga starka industriella plattformar och öka kompetensen. För att lyckas krävs ökad samordning och samverkan. Det menar Kungl. Ingenjörsvetenskapsakademien i en ny rapport som presenteras den 4 mars.
