Privacy Since Edward Snowden Edward Snowden/El Tiempo

斯诺登事件之后的隐私

伦敦——现在离美国前情报承包商爱德华·斯诺登披露美国家安全局大规模网络监视行动已经整整一年了。他所披露的行为引发了公众愤怒和德国等亲密盟友的强烈指责,颠覆了现实生活中互联网和电信网络多么自由安全的美好假设。斯诺登靠一己之力改变了人们对手机、平板和笔记本电脑的认识,引发公众辩论个人信息保护。但泄密事件并没有带来真正的改革。

可以肯定,美国总统奥巴马在民间社团和科技产业的联手带动下已经采取了某些举措。在1月讲话及随后颁布的总统施政令中,奥巴马命令美国间谍认可“无论国籍或可能居住在哪里,所有人都应该享有尊严和尊重,同时每个人在对其个人信息进行处理时都享有合法的隐私权。”

上述隐私保护要求带来了情报机构阴暗世界里某些前所未有的进步。奥巴马政府在科技公司状告政府披露情报要求细节时做出了妥协,通过和解方案允许透露进一步的报告。照此协议,企业有权公开情报机构索取资料的次数(250到1,000次),具体情况取决于命令类型的解聚程度。

    The Survival of Democracy in Central and Eastern Europe

    Sławomir Sierakowski

    Following parliamentary elections in Poland and local elections in Hungary, populist autocrats in both countries remain in power, where they will continue to undermine democratic institutions. Even so, relative victories for opposition forces in both countries show that the region's "illiberal democrats" are not unbeatable.

    India’s Modi Slowdown

    Shashi Tharoor

    After Prime Minister Narendra Modi was overwhelmingly re-elected in May with an even larger majority for his party, many economists expected him to take bold steps to remove the many bottlenecks that have discouraged investors. But no one should believe the Modi government has the ability or the will to fix what it broke.

    Will Trump Be Removed from Office?

    Elizabeth Drew

    Assuming the US House of Representatives votes to impeach President Donald Trump, the fact remains that there are far fewer votes in the Senate than will be needed to convict him and remove him from office. But the willingness of Congress – including the Senate – to continue tolerating his dangerous conduct is now truly in question.
