About the Authors
  • This collection of essays explores current developments in privacy law, including reform of data protection laws, privacy and the media, social control and surveillance, privacy and the Internet, and privacy and the courts. It places these developments into a broader international context, with a particular focus on the European Union, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Adopting a comparative approach, it creates an important resource for understanding international trends in the reform of privacy and data protection laws across a variety of contexts. Written by internationally recognised experts, Emerging Challenges in Privacy Law: Comparative Perspectives provides an accessible introduction to contemporary legal and policy debates in privacy and data protection law. It is essential reading for academics, policy makers and practitioners interested in current challenges facing privacy and data protection law in Europe and in the common law world.

    • Provides those interested in privacy law and policy with a convenient and accessible overview of current and emerging issues
    • Applies a comparative perspective to a broad range of current privacy issues
    • Analyses contemporary challenges to the protection of privacy in diverse contexts, including media, Internet, court proceedings, surveillance and data protection
