Micheal Vonn speaks on Public Lives: What Eroding Privacy Means for Democracy

19 March 2013 - 14 March 2013
13:00 PM
Abbotsford Campus

The blurring of our public and private lives in the internet age is a hot topic of discussion. Where do government’s actions end and the rights of individuals begin?

 

How do you even define privacy in today’s technologically driven and globalized world?  And furthermore what does the trend to eroding privacy mean for democracy?

 

Micheal Vonn, policy director at the BC Civil Liberties Association, will be at UFV’s Abbotsford campus on Tues, March 19, at 1 pm to explore some of these key civil rights and privacy issues. The talk will be in the lecture theatre in room B101.

 

Ms. Vonn is a lawyer and has been the policy director of the BCCLA since 2004.  She has been an adjunct professor at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in the Faculty of Law and in the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies where she taught civil liberties and information ethics.
