The challenges faced by privacy laws in changing technological, commercial and social environments are considered in this broad-ranging examination of privacy law. The book encompasses three overlapping areas of analysis:-

  • privacy protection under the general law;
  • legislative measures for data protection in digital communications networks;
  • the influence of transnational agreements and other pressures toward harmonised privacy standards.
Leading, internationally-recognised authors discuss developments across these three areas in the UK, Europe, the US, APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation), Australia and New Zealand. Chapters draw on doctrinal and historical analysis of case law, theoretical approaches to both freedom of speech and privacy, and the interaction of law and communications technologies in order to examine present and future challenges to law's engagement with privacy.
  • Contributions from internationally-recognised authors provide readers with the varied perspectives of the leading commentators in the field of privacy law
  • The broad scope of the issues and jurisdictions considered allows clear themes to emerge beyond the particular legal situations in individual jurisdictions
  • The book is topical in examining ongoing case law developments, particularly in England and New Zealand, which will remain significant for the privacy and the media in many Commonwealth countries for many years to come
