There have been some dramatic and controversial developments in the field of surveillance law over the last twelve months or so, whether it be revelations about undercover officers, mass surveillance, challenges progressing in Strasbourg probing the legality of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 or domestic decisions in phone-hacking and cases where Part II resources have been deployed.

Aims and Objectives
