With our intelligence agencies firmly in the spotlight in the wake of the Chilcot report, we turn our attention to their role on the home front. Former Chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee Malcolm Rifkind (Power and Pragmatism) and distinguished human rights lawyer Helena Kennedy explore how governments balance civil liberties with national security and to what extent surveillance legislation is influenced by democratic will. Chaired by the philosopher Julian Baggini (The Edge of Reason).
