Chapter 2

The Snowden Revelations

Abstract

This chapter discusses the revelations brought about by the documents leaked by former US government contractor Edward Snowden. It covers a discussion of the legality and ethics of government mass surveillance, including responses from governments, law firms, experts and privacy campaigners. It examines the history of the NSA in particular, with the aim of revealing that the organization has sought to spy on US citizens from the outset. It concludes with a discussion of recent EU Parliamentary arguments both for reform, and maintaining the status quo.
