The right of privacy in the UK is a topic of much controversy between the media and the upholders of such a right. The Human Rights Act is likely to have a considerable impact on UK privacy law, introducing in the UK some of the principles which have long been in force in other European states as a result of the European Convention of Human Rights. The essays in this book examine the experiences of other countries, with similar political, economic and social situations, many of which provide better protection than the UK in cases of invasion of privacy.
