-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Founded in 1991, Statewatch is an independent group of researchers, academics, journalists, lawyers and community activists. Working on a br
oad range of civil liberties issues, Statewatch has gained a reputationfor accuracy and originality. Ten years since Statewatch was formed and seven years since the groundbreaking "Statewatching the new Europe" conference
raised concerns about the emerging European state, Statewatch
is bringing together speakers from across Europe to explore the
links between the state and its agencies in the context of
globalisation. The conference will look at decision-making
structures, new technologies of control, migration and racism,
secrecy and accountability.
