The Developmental Science of Privacy

The Developmental Science of Privacy

(p.136) 5 The Developmental Science of Privacy
Adolescence, Privacy, and the Law

Roger J. R. Levesque

Oxford University Press

This chapter moves in two different directions. First, it details what empirical research reveals about adolescents’ privacy needs. That analysis centers on the developmental tasks of adolescents, on what adolescents need to achieve during this period to become healthy, productive, and contributing members of society. Second, the discussion examines the empirical foundation needed to determine whether adolescents could be deemed as having privacy rights, and the extent to which they could control those rights. The analysis concludes that society can shape how adolescents use their privacy. It can be shaped because privacy has important social dimensions that allow for influencing the experience of privacy and that provide the policy rationale for shaping it.
