Organized by Georgia Tech.
Chair: Patrick Penninckx, Council of Europe (INT)
Moderator: Peter Swire, Georgia Tech (US)
Panel: Aaron Altschuler, Yahoo (US), Bertrand de la Chapelle, Internet & Jurisdiction Project (FR), Gail Kent, Facebook (US), Carly Nyst, Human Rights lawyer (UK)
This panel will discuss current frustrations with the process for cross-border data requests for law enforcement, with a focus on the perspective of European law enforcement, civil society, and industry stakeholders. It will examine the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) system, and the key issues that have especially arisen in the wake of the Snowden revelations. The panel will examine the key tensions and overlaps between stakeholders’ needs, and possible paths to MLAT reform. Panelists will also discuss how current pressure on the MLAT system is driving countries to seek alternate means of exerting sovereign control over data, including through data localization laws and pressure on encrypted services to provide their users’ content. The panel will address:
- Stakeholder goals for the system of cross-border data requests for law enforcement The intersection of European & US stakeholder interests - The impact of MLAT system problems on other Internet and technology policies - Possible paths to reform, post-Snowden, of the system of cross-border law enforcement requests
