Government oversight over intelligence agencies is often toothless. Therefore, courts are the last resort to turn to, and in many cases they have been much more aggressive than politicians in curtailing surveillance agencies’ powers. We will present the latest developments in cases like Reporters without Borders vs. BND and UK groups vs. GCHQ. We will also discuss and develop new ideas for strategic litigation in order to defend civil liberties on as many fronts as possible.
