  • The regulation of intimate relationships has been a key battleground in the culture wars of the past three decades. In this bold and innovative book, Jean Cohen presents a new approach to regulating intimacy that promises to defuse the tensions that have long sparked conflict among legislators, jurists, activists, and scholars. Disputes have typically arisen over questions that apparently set the demands of personal autonomy, justice, and responsibility against each other. Can law stay out of the bedroom without shielding oppression and abuse? Can we protect the pursuit of personal happiness while requiring people to behave responsibly toward others? Can regulation acknowledge a variety of intimate relationships without privileging any? Must regulating intimacy involve a clash between privacy and equality? Cohen argues that these questions have been impossible to resolve because most legislators, activists, and scholars have drawn on an anachronistic conception of privacy, one founded on the idea that privacy involves secrecy and entails a sphere free from legal regulation. In response, Cohen draws on Habermas and other European thinkers to present a robust "constructivist" defense of privacy, one based on the idea that norms and rights are legally constructed. Cohen roots her arguments in debates over three particularly contentious issues: reproductive rights, sexual orientation, and sexual harassment. She shows how a new legal framework, "reflexive law," all...

  • In the increasingly global economy and workplace, the difference in workplace privacy expectations and protections in the United States and Europe stand out. In the United States, privacy protections depend on whether employees have reasonable privacy expectations, but employers are relatively free to destroy actual expectations through notices. In Europe, workplace privacy is not conditioned on employee privacy expectations, but is protected as a matter of public policy. Thus, in Europe - where reasonable privacy expectations are not a condition to privacy protection - employees can actually and reasonably expect workplace privacy, and in the United States - where privacy protections depend on reasonable privacy expectations - employees cannot expect much privacy in practice. This book examines the underlying policy reasons and legal frameworks that control the extent to which employers may monitor their employees, including implications for multinational employers and employees in the United States and Europe.

  • Today's offered services in the World Wide Web increasingly rely on the disclosure of private user information. Service providers' appetite for personal user data, however, is accompanied by growing privacy implications for Internet users. Targeting the rising privacy concerns of users, privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) emerged. One goal of these technologies is the provision of tools that facilitate more informed decisions about personal data disclosures. Unfortunately, available PET solutions are used by only a small fraction of Internet users. A major reason for the low acceptance of PETs is their lack of usability. Most PET approaches rely on the cooperation of service providers that do not voluntarily adopt privacy components in their service infrastructures.Addressing the weaknesses of existing PETs, this book introduces a user-centric privacy architecture that facilitates a provider-independent exchange of privacy-related information about service providers. This capability is achieved by a privacy community, an open information source within the proposed privacy architecture. A Wikipedia-like Web front-end enables collaborative maintenance of service provider information including multiple ratings, experiences and data handling practices.In addition to the collaborative privacy community, the introduced privacy architecture contains three usable PET components on the user side that support users before, during and after the disclosure of personal data.

  • We all know that Google stores huge amounts of information about everyone who uses its search tools, that Amazon can recommend new books to us based on our past purchases, and that the U.S. government engaged in many data-mining activities during the Bush administration to acquire information about us, including involving telecommunications companies in monitoring our phone calls (currently the subject of a bill in Congress). Control over access to our bodies and to special places, like our homes, has traditionally been the focus of concerns about privacy, but access to information about us is raising new challenges for those anxious to protect our privacy. In Privacy Rights, Adam Moore adds informational privacy to physical and spatial privacy as fundamental to developing a general theory of privacy that is well grounded morally and legally.

  • In this contemporary world of our time the progression of migration from developing countries to better developed regions is getting more common trend with a very difficult and traumatic experiences. This involves leaving behind familiar support and moving great distances to unknown foreign destinations. Refugees seek better conditions considering the earth as a common place and associate themselves with other societies. Under such state of affairs there are legal challenges the study discovered. The required legal documents to cross the boarders, absence of legal-council in the country of asylum, the refugee governance and the nature of trans-nationality of refugee status determination are the main legal challenges that make refugee status determination unpredictable. On top of that the study unearthed politicization of refugee protection and the perceptions towards refugees. These have been identified as socio-legal global challenges of the contemporary refugee regime.

  • An electronic government system could contribute to the erosion of privacy and give the government undue power if it does not show strong privacy concerns in its design and implementation. There is the need for proactive measures in protecting individual privacy because it can be difficult to regain once it is gone. Privacy could serve as a powerful tool to check arbitrariness and disproportionate use of power in a democratic society. Personal data is a valuable asset and it protection will play a significant role in ensuring the balance of power between citizens and state. A large scale usage, aggregation, exchange and data mining of personal data in e-government may have a negative effect on the balance of power between the citizens and the state and could result in privacy erosion. In this regard the EU i2010 action plan on e- government requires critical assessment in order to maintain the high level of regard for privacy in the EU.

  • Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Computer Science - Internet, New Technologies, grade: 1,7, University of Hannover (Knowledge Based Systems Institute), language: English, abstract: Social Web applications are steadily gaining popularity. At the same time, the open nature of such services leads to the exposure of an immense amount of personal data.Due to insucient access control on nowadays Social Web applications problems in terms of privacy arise. This thesis focuses on the need for more exible and negrained privacy restrictions. It analyses privacy problems of current Social Web applications and compares the privacy preferences such applications over. Based on this analysis, this thesis extends the well-known principle of policy-based accesscontrol, which is a exible and dynamic way to dene who can get access to what content based on user preferences. The presented extension accommodates policies to the requirements of the Social Web. In particular, it describes how to exploit Social Semantic Web data for privacy reasoning. This includes the retrieval of Socialand Semantic Web data from various information sources on the Web. It further includes its usage for the denition of privacy policies and its consideration during the policy evaluation. Consequently, using Social Semantic Web data for policy reasoning allows users to exactly dene which social relationships and properties a requester has to have in order to access a particular resource. These condition...

  • Chemical weapons are a threat to international security. According to an international convention, the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), all chemical weapons fall under a stringent and irreversible disarmament regime that seeks the abolition of the use and existence of chemical weapons altogether. The CWC is considered to be the first verifiable disarmament treaty; furthermore, it targets an entire category of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). Unfortunately there is a gap between the legal requirements of the CWC disarmament regime and its implementation. This gap between the theoretical and practical aspects of disarmament implies a practical, result-based approach to disarmament throughout this study; it raises doubts about the feasibility of chemical weapons disarmament under international law. The central question of this study is whether international law can achieve the effective disarmament of chemical weapons. A background on the chemical weapons disarmament regime is provided in this study. The legal control of chemical weapons follows a clear evolution, from the ban on the use of chemical weapons in conflicts to the international consensus to disarm them altogether. Concerning the legal control for chemical weapons, questions arise about the type of instrument suited for effective disarmament.

  • The electronic patient record (EPR), although very useful, could have negative consequences for one's personal privacy. This book gives an introduction to health privacy issues. It also explores the relation between political attitudes and health privacy. {{ ABSTRACT: The storage of personal health information in nationwide EPR has led to a heated political debate in the Netherlands. The link between the political attitudes of individuals and the value given to health privacy is largely unknown. This study introduces the Health Privacy and Political Attitudes Survey. Results: most political attitudes are not a good predictor of ideas on health privacy, but authoritarian attitudes strengthen the trust in (government regulated) electronic records. Weak evidence suggests that women are more enthusiastic about the EPR. Earlier research from the Rathenau Institute (2009) indicated that higher educated persons are less enthusiastic about the EPR; this study weakens their finding. }}

  • ''Online Privacy Fears Stoked By Google, Twitter, Facebook Data Collection Arms Race'', ''Your E-Book Is Reading You'', '' 'Instant personalization' brings more privacy issues to Facebook''. These are only a few recent examples of media headlines that deal with the issue of online privacy and personalization.Scholars and managers have repeatedly stated the benefits of personalization which is targeting products and services to individual customers, and constitutes a key element of an interactive marketing strategy. In order to accurately estimate the needs and wants of customers, it is necessary to gather a significant amount of information. Privacy concerns may arise when personal information about customers is gathered. If this arises, personalization can backfire by making clients reluctant to use the service or - even worse - developing a negative attitude towards the company.A recent survey by Opera Software (2011) found that Americans fear online privacy violations more than job losses or declaring personal bankruptcy. This had induced politicians to introduce regulations and laws that address online privacy that safeguards consumers against online monitoring, and intrusion into confidential user information. However, privacy online remains a complicated issue for both, managers and politicians for new personalization technology emerges at a much faster pace than political regulations and guidelines.This is the fir...
