About Surveillance, Privacy and Trans-Atlantic Relations

Recent revelations, by Edward Snowden and others, of the vast network of government spying enabled by modern technology have raised major concerns both in the European Union and the United States on how to protect privacy in the face of increasing governmental surveillance.
This book brings together some of the leading experts in the fields of constitutional law, criminal law and human rights from the US and the EU to examine the protection of privacy in the digital era, as well as the challenges that counter-terrorism cooperation between governments pose to human rights. It examines the state of privacy protections on both sides of the Atlantic, the best mechanisms for preserving privacy, and whether the EU and the US should develop joint transnational mechanisms to protect privacy on a reciprocal basis.
As technology enables governments to know more and more about their citizens, and about the citizens of other nations, this volume offers critical perspectives on how best to respond to one of the most challenging developments of the twenty-first century.


“...there is plenty here to both introduce scholars to current critical debates and problems, and at the same time to suggest important points of departure for further research.” –  Bernard Keenan, Department of Law, London School of Economics and Political Science, International Journal of Law and Information Technology

“In this book, issues of privacy and surveillance are explored from a domestic, comparative and transatlantic perspective as well as from the perspective of private corporations, non-governmental organizations and oversight authorities. Thus, it gives a comprehensive overview about current transatlantic challenges and the perspectives involved.” –  S-I Ghotra, European Review of Public Law
