Privacy and Data Protection
In the new global economy, enforcement of the right to privacy and data protection exemplifies the necessity for an internationally co-ordinated approach to fundamental imperatives. The highly contentious and complex issues surrounding privacy and data protection enforcement have been brought to the fore in this publication, and are further highlighted in recent cases. This book demonstrates new developments and subsequent legislative initiatives, which aim to address international concerns.
Permeated throughout with a wealth of new cases and acute commentary thereon, the book is characterised by its pragmatic and authoritative approach to privacy and data protection. The book also explores the impact of the Internet on privacy in a wired world with its tracking technologies. It also includes the EU Directive which will provide a major impetus to the harmonisation of national privacy laws.
