Surveillance Studies Network 

the international research and information network on surveillance 

Surveillance Studies Network (SSN) is a registered charitable company dedicated to the study of surveillance in all its forms, and the free distribution of scholarly information.

We are registered in the UK, but welcome members and supporters from all over the world. We own and run the journal Surveillance and Society and also act as a clearing house for social science and policy research and consultancy about surveillance.
