The Post-Snowden Era: Mass Surveillance and Privacy in New Zealand
Recent revelations about the nature and extent of global surveillance programmes have shocked many. But what are their implications in the long-term and for New Zealand? Mapping New Zealand’s role in international intelligence gathering from World War Two to the present day, Kathleen Kuehn asks probing questions about the behaviour of both the state and corporations in our current ‘surveillance society’. Ultimately these questions force us to confront the way we value our individual privacy and civil liberties, for as we often hear why should any of this matter if we have nothing to hide?
