SURVEILLE - Surveillance: Ethical Issues, Legal Limitations, and Efficiency

This project received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no. 284725

This examination of the types of surveillance technology deployed in Europe identifies its costs and benefits and assesses legal and ethical issues raised by its use in the prevention, investigation and prosecution of terrorism and other crime – including those related to fundamental rights.

In the European Parliament's resolution of 29 October 2015 on the electronic masssurveillance of EU citizens, this project was commended for its methodology for assessing surveillance technologies that takes legal, ethical and technological considerations into account.

This project was funded by the European Commission, through the EU's 7th Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration.
