Rotary Forum 2014  >>

The privacy Security dilemma.

Rotary Forum 2016 was held on 
Tuesday 31 May 2016 at Rydges Hotel, Wellington.

What kind of world exists between the shadows of threat, and our right to personal privacy and national security? How much do we know - or should know – and can citizens trust authorities and global corporations to make the rules for us?
