EU Counter-Terrorism Strategy Discussion Paper highlights SURVEILLE Advisory Service
In his latest discussion paper presented to the Council of the European Union Gilles de Kerchove, the EU Counter-Terrorism Coordinator, has highlighted the advisory service of the SURVEILLE project and encouraged its use. In addressing the nexus of counter-terrorism with human rights, Mr. De Kerchove stated:
“On a practical level, I would encourage making use of the advisory service for security research in the EU financed SURVEILLE project which helps to develop technology consistent with ethical and human rights commitments and useful to end users (https://surveille.eui.eui.eu/index.php/advisory-service/).”
The SURVEILLE Advisory Service provides advice which is practical and constructive towards the aim of developing technology consistent with ethical and human rights commitments and useful to end users.
The Advisory Service is run by the University of Birmingham under the leadership of Professor Tom Sorell with the assistance of Dr John Guelke and Dr Katerina Hadjimatheou, all of whom are based at the university’s Centre for the Study of Global Ethics.
