Passenger 17A: The Snowden, Asylum and the Surveillance-Privacy Debate

Abstract:

Refugee rights activists in the Indian sub-continent used India’s rejection of Edward Snowden’s asylum claim as a perfect pitching ground to engage in refugee rights advocacy in the country. While an asylum adjudication system might have accorded him a hearing, this piece argues that India’s decision to reject Snowden’s asylum claim is a tacit reinforcement  of the government’s own surveillance measures, the logic of which underpins the rejection of  Snowden’s asylum claim and the result of which can only be the eventual erosion of humanrights and individual freedoms
