The Centre for Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism and Macquarie Law School invite staff to a seminar on the regulation of surveillance under the European Convention on Human Rights.

Where:  Blackshield Meeting Room, W3A Room 501, Macquarie Law School
When:  Thursday, 11 December from 1-2pm
Seminar:  Regulation of Surveillance under the European Convention on Human Rights.
Speaker:  Professor Maeve McDonagh, Professor of Law, University College Cork, Ireland

This seminar traces the development of the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights on the regulation of surveillance by state actors.  Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), which guarantees the right to respect for private life, family, home and correspondence, constitutes the main source of protection against such surveillance. Forms of surveillance that have been the subject of proceedings before the court include interception and metering of telephones, installation of listening devices, visual surveillance and monitoring of internet usage. The seminar explores the circumstances in which the carrying out of surveillance is permitted under the Convention and the standards developed by the court for the conduct of such surveillance. While the main focus of the presentation will be on the application of the right to respect for private life to surveillance related activities, the implications of surveillance for enjoyment of the right to a fair trial is also explored as is the extent to which the conduct of surveillance can amount to a violation of the right to freedom of expression. The impact of the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights at domestic level in Europe has been significant, in many instances necessitating the making of changes to national
surveillance laws. In terms of the relevance to Australia, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Australia is a party, contains a right to privacy (Article 17) which corresponds closely to its counterpart in the ECHR.
