The Future of Privacy

(p.143) Part IV The Future of Privacy
Privacy in Peril

James B. Rule

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes a look at the possible future of privacy. It considers the views of privacy defenders, and examines the judgments on where and how to draw a line against the endless erosion of privacy. It looks at the official responses to privacy protection and tries to balance the various privacy codes. It then identifies the roots of the conflict in privacy and the type of world that is emerging from the growth of surveillance systems. Finally, the chapter discusses the apparent desensitization of publics to the daily demands on privacy and draws some positive and negative conclusions.

Keywords:   future of privacy, privacy defenders, privacy protection, privacy codes, surveillance systems, desensitization
