ASEAN Auditorium

GEO: ,


Can tech titans really tackle the NSA over the Constitution? Twitter, Facebook and more demand changes to US surveillance Companies moving their technology overseas to avoid NSA spying.

Join us on Monday, January 27th at 6 pm for a “Fletcher Reads the Newspaper” event that will focus on the current headlines around cyber-security at the intersection of the public and private sectors.

We will discuss the balance between the need for intelligence gathering by governments and the implications for technology companies such as Google, Twitter, and Yahoo. Our three Fletcher experts will frame these issues from various sides of the debate: national security, with a particular emphasis on cybersecurity issues; geopolitical implications; and communications policy and frameworks. Participants will be sent several newspaper articles to read in advance, and the session will be run as a case discussion. There will be a breakout session (INCLUDING PIZZA!) when students will consider what recommendations to make to Eric Schmidt of Google or Marissa Mayer at Yahoo! to get ahead of this potentially ballooning crisis. Panelists: Professor Dan Drezner, Professor Carolyn Gideon and Professor William Martel. Moderated by Dean Bhaskar Chakravorti

Monday, January 27th from 6 – 8 pm in ASEAN Auditorium.
