Understanding Privacy

July 17, 2009
What is privacy? Why is it valuable? How should we balance it against other interests? What does privacy mean in the world of modern technology? Privacy, as many have lamented, is currently a concept in disarray. Professor Daniel Solove discussed his new book, Understanding Privacy, in which he proposes a new theory for understanding privacy that draws from a broad array of interdisciplinary sources and provides clear guidance for engaging with privacy issues in law and policy.
