Dean's Seminar: October Preview Theory of Privacy

Professor Michael Birnhack
(Visiting Associate Fellow, Institute of Advanced Legal Studies)

Professor Birnhack discusses his forthcoming lecture on 12 October 2011 at 12:30. As our lives go digital, there is a growing awareness that our privacy is eroding. New technologies, practices of data aggregating and data-mining, social networks, globalisation and public interests of national security and public order--all challenge our privacy. The ongoing discussion about the essence of privacy reaches a boiling point. This talk will discuss the continuous search for a theory of privacy.
