Privacy Law and Adolescence

Privacy Law and Adolescence

(p.1) 1 Privacy Law and Adolescence
Adolescence, Privacy, and the Law

Roger J. R. Levesque

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the urgent need to develop a coherent approach to respecting privacy’s appropriate place in our lives by taking a developmental-science view of the right to privacy. It reveals the book’s argument that the nature of the right to privacy has undergone rapid transformation, and that transformation requires a different approach to protecting what we have come to understand as privacy. It requires what society typically has done to address all other social issues—looked toward youth. This means understanding the place of privacy in adolescence and how society can shape the experience of privacy and its outcomes. It means understanding how the adolescent period triggers the manner in which people will use, expect, and respect privacy. It means thinking through how the legal system could be harnessed to shape adolescents’ experiences critical to protecting privacy in ways that would enhance individual well-being and societal functioning.
