I am Sander Flight: independent academic based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I began my career as a researcher in 1996 and since then I have specialized in surveillance, privacy and camera technology.

I have published widely on the subject, sometimes in English. Some examples:


Since 2014, I teach courses about public order law, security-issues and privacy. Other teaching assignments are guest-lectures for students in several Dutch universities (Leiden, Twente, Utrecht, Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Delft). I also regularly present at international conferences and am available as speaker or panel-member.
