Interested in law and surveillance? Volunteer at Privacy International!

Privacy International is looking for volunteers to help with its Big Brother Incorporated project, an investigation into the global surveillance industry focusing on the sale of technologies to brutal and oppressive regimes intent on using them as tools of political control. We're looking for volunteers who are able to help us with factual and legal research in relation to our casework.
