Welcome to the website for the Centre for Research into Information, Surveillance and Privacy (CRISP). CRISP is a collaborative initiative between the University of St Andrews’ Management School, Stirling Management School and the University of Edinburgh’s School of Social and Political Sciences and School of Law. It is a new research centre that aims to become one of the leading research and knowledge exchange centres in Europe studying the many dimensions of the surveillance society and its consequences. CRISP also incorporates the Scottish Privacy Forum, a group of Scottish privacy, data protection and information professionals.
We will achieve our aims through producing and disseminating the results of funded scholarly research, media engagement and the promotion of networking and knowledge exchange between practitioners, academics, students, activists and society more generally.
