Call for Papers: The Ethics of State Mass Surveillance


Special Issue of Moral Philosophy and Politics


Guest Editor: Peter Koenigs (Tübingen/Karlsruhe)


In the aftermath of 9/11 and other terrorist attacks, many governments have increased their surveillance efforts. Extensive surveillance measures hold the promise of better protection against terrorism and organized crime. The legitimate effort to ensure citizens’ security clashes, however, with citizens’ equally legitimate interest in privacy and freedom from state surveillance. Moral Philosophy and Politics invites contributions that explore the ethical significance of state mass surveillance, addressing such questions as:


- What, if anything, is valuable about privacy and freedom from state surveillance?

- Does the mere collecting, but not accessing, of personal information by states constitute a privacy violation?

- When are infringements upon citizens’ privacy proportionate?

- Should we increase surveillance efforts to prevent (catastrophic) terrorist attacks?

- Is there a liberal/libertarian/republican/communitarian/etc. case for or against state mass surveillance?

Papers should be submitted before June 30, 2019 and should generally not exceed 8000 words; shorter articles will also be accepted for review.


All submissions will undergo MOPP’s double-blind refereeing process.
