Genna Churches is a PhD candidate at UNSW Law. The title of her thesis is ‘The Evolution of Metadata Regulation in Australia: From Envelopes and Letters to URLs and Web Browsing’. The focus of her thesis is the access to and retention of telecommunications metadata, questioning how legislators understandings of technology, the legislation of analogous technologies (such as the post and telephone) and the influence of pro-security politics have informed the balance between privacy protections and other social objectives in current telecommunications legislation.
