SurPRISE Citizen Summits

The SurPRISE citizen summits, which are held in nine European countries, are currently in progress. The consultations have already taken place in Denmark, Norway, Hungary, Spain, Italy and Austria and will be concluded by Switzerland, the UK and Germany until the end of March 2014.

The program is a combination of films on selected security technologies, deliberation in small groups and individual voting – displayed to the plenum. The citizen summit combines qualitative and quantitative methods and provides data in order to understand differences, according to nationality, social class, age and gender. It will provide important insights in what European citizens think of the trade-off between privacy and security.
