Presented in partnership with the University of Colorado Law School, Dean S. James Anaya will moderate a 1.5 hour panel discussion on current surveillance efforts in the U.S. and abroad and how these efforts affect civil and human rights.

Armed with new technologies, countries throughout the world have increasingly sought to monitor the behavior of their citizens and the citizens of other countries. What is the current technological capacity of governments to conduct surveillance? How does this enhanced capacity potentially infringe upon accepted norms of privacy? What challenges does it raise with respect to international law?

Panelists include: Kara Frederick, is the Associate Fellow for the Technology and National Security Program at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS). Dr. Keith Guzik is an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado at Denver. Dr. Guzik's areas of concentration include criminology, law and society, science & technology studies, sociological theory, and qualitative methods. Amie Stepanovich is the Executive Director at Silicon Flatirons. She is a nationally recognized expert in domestic surveillance, cybersecurity, and privacy law. Paul Mozur is a New York Times Journalist a technology reporter based in Shanghai (who will participate via video).


While the Conference on World Affairs hosts over 100 speakers and performers during one week in April, the Speaker Series is designed to focus on individual distinguished guests, as a means of extending the cultural and intellectual environment of the CWA throughout the year.

The CWA Speaker Series was established in 1998, inspired by the tradition of an ancient Greek Athenaeum (for which it was originally named) where poets, philosophers, and orators gathered to read and discuss their work. The CWA Speaker Series encourages interdisciplinary explorations of ideas and draws together students from various colleges on the CU Boulder campus. CWA Speaker Series guests are hosted by students for the duration of their stay. These visits typically include classroom visits, an evening talk or performance that is open to the public without charge, and a social event with students, faculty, staff, and community supporters.
