Preliminary findings from a study I was involved in on activist perceptions of surveillance have just been released. The project was led by colleagues at the University of St Andrews and openDemocracy and wanted to understand whether recent revelations about state surveillance had effected how activists mobilise.
The outcome of the research was that, by and large, there hasn't been an effect. This interesting and potentially worrying finding prompted a range of responses that have been published on the openDemocracy website where you can also read the study's main conclusions.
