EXPLORING THE LIMITS OF THE SURVEILLANCE SOCIETY
Power requires Law. Only Law guarantees an adequate balance between antagonistic positions. Power has to be judged and calibrated; eventually it may need to be either adjusted or removed. But one thing is certain – without Law, all is lost.
In this edition, we explore the territory where power and Law meet. Why and how are citizens under surveillance? Should we be viewed as inert lumps of data? What influence do states exert on global food security? How are governments addressing the issue of mass migration and what does it mean for the future?
Our authors dissect the main arguments and legal procedures. Criteria are necessary to understand the justifiability of power. The legality of power can never be taken for granted.
