Format: 24x15cm, broschiert, 183 Seiten
This book is based on contributions to an international conference held in Vienna on November 11th 2002. The conference entitled Privacy - a basic right with expiring date? was a forum for an interdisciplinary dialog of experts from academia as well as politicians and representatives from civilian society. The papers in this book argue that privacy is an indispensable value in liberal societies, present an overview on the development of basic rights from the past to the present and discuss the impact of personal rights seen as economic goods. Global assumptions and international governance of information privacy are discussed in another paper. A further paper deals with the surveillance and sociological implications of sorting and integrating personal data. Technical approaches are available to overcome some of the problems mentioned above, which are presented in a contribution of privacy enhancing technologies. The book concludes with a contribution about data protection as consumer protection and an overview on the situation in Austria.
