A Roadmap for developing acceptable surveillance-based security measures

Sara Degli Esposti

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceedingpeer-review


By analyzing quantitative data gathered in nine European countries as part of the
SurPRISE project, the article shows how people may be willing to accept to be under surveillance, provided they consider the measure to be accurate and effective, clearly see that the measure targets criminals, and they consider system operators to be trustworthy. On the other hand, if a certain security measure has the potential to reveal sensitive information about the subject and people face the risk of feeling embarrassed and exposed as a result of its implementation, public opposition rather than support is more likely to emerge.
