Our Small Daily Freedoms
Frank Bannister is an Associate Professor in Information Systems at Trinity College Dublin. Prior to becoming an academic in 1995, he worked in both the Irish civil service and for PwC as a management consultant. In his talk: “Our Small Daily Freedoms” Bannister opposes the technological capacity of modern governments to surveil its citizens with our individual right to privacy while addressing the important moral questions at stake in a computerised world. In alignment with his talk, his research interests are e-government, e-democracy, online privacy and trust, and IT value and evaluation — particularly in the public sector. He is chairman of the European Conference on e-Government, a member of the European Group on Public Administration and editor of the Electronic Journal of e-Government.
