    Recorded October 4, 2022

    The sale and export of surveillance technology is a growing industry around the world with serious impacts on human rights, such as the rights to privacy and freedom of expression. Canadian companies are participants in this industry, raising important questions regarding human rights due diligence, ethics, and more. This presentation provides an introduction to this global industry and uses the example of spyware—a particularly intrusive form of surveillance which essentially turns your phone into a spy in your pocket—as a case study for discussing some of the key regulatory and other issues arising from the spread of surveillance technology.

    Siena Anstis is a Senior Legal Advisor with The Citizen Lab, an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto. Siena’s research focuses on international law, human rights, technology, and migration. Prior to joining Citizen Lab, Siena worked at Morrison & Foerster LLP in New York and clerked at the Supreme Court of Canada and Ontario Court of Appeal. Her recent publications discuss how Canadian internet-filtering technology has been misused by authoritarian regimes and how government procurement processes can inject transparency and accountability into the development of hacking technology.

    Recorded Thursday, September 29, 2022

    By forcing many employees to work from home, COVID-19 challenged long-accepted norms and expectations surrounding work and the workplace. For some, working remotely has been a welcome change, and at times a refuge from unwanted office dynamics such as microaggressions. Meanwhile, many organizations are keen to get “back to normal” and are requiring or encouraging employees to return to the office. With the knowledge that “normal” ways of working may not have always been inclusive, our panel seeks to explore how lessons learned from the pandemic can inform how we can make the return to office inclusive for everyone.
