Abstract

In One Nation Under Surveillance, Simon Chesterman, Dean of the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law, addresses many of these same abuses through a new lens, assessing the balancing of personal privacy and the need for intelligence. Chesterman offers an important and comprehensive look at surveillance and privacy in Europe and the United States, tackling some of the most important issues associated with intelligence gathering. In reframing intelligence gathering as a problem not just for governments, but also for citizens, Chesterman posits a structure in which intelligence services can be held accountable through control, oversight, review, and organizational culture.

Keywords: intelligence, privacy, surveillance
