CRISP - Information, Surveillance and Privacy

CRISP is the leading research and knowledge exchange centre in Europe studying the many dimensions of the surveillance society and its consequences.

It's a collaborative networked initiative between the:

CRISP achieves its aims through producing and disseminating the results of funded scholarly research, media engagement and the promotion of networking and knowledge exchange between practitioners, academics, students, activists and society more generally.
