This book focuses on the right to privacy in the digital age with a view to see how it is implemented across the globe in different jurisdictions.
The right to privacy is one of the rights enshrined in international human rights law. It has been a topic of interest for both academic and non-academic audiences around the world. However, with the increasing digitalisation of modern life, protecting one’s privacy has become more complicated. Both state and non-state organisations make frequent interventions in citizens’ private lives. This edited volume aims to provide an overview of recent development pertaining to the protection of the right to privacy in the different judicial systems such as the European, South Asian, African and Inter-American legal systems.
The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of The International Journal of Human Rights.
