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。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
