Bantlin, Franziska: Die G 10-Kommission - Zur Kontrolle der Nachrichtendienste
»The G 10 Commission - Intelligence Oversight in Germany and the U.S.«
Effective legal oversight is essential to the legitimate exercise of the vast authorities intelligence agencies possess, particularly in the area of telecommunications surveillance. This book argues that the G 10 Commission is not capable to provide the oversight required by the German constitution. It also analyzes the U.S. model and offers a reform proposal that is based on a court procedure involving a public advocate with standing.
