7 years after the Snowden revelations - What have we learned?

In summer 2013, Edward Snowden, together with several reporters and newspaper editors, revealed the espionage practices of various intelligence agencies, in particular the activities of the American National Security Agency (NSA) and the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). These revelations provided interesting insights into the technical possibilities and the extent of espionage in the digital space; never before have such activities been reported so comprehensively.

Almost seven years later, we look back on the impact of these revelations and also place them in their historical context.
