Abstract

Much of the legal debate over privacy is based around abstract notions from legal philosophy concerning fundamental rights. However, there is a growing body of evidence from the social sciences regarding privacy-related individual and institutional behaviour. Some of these results are counterintuitive, and provide key insights into the effectiveness of existing and potential privacy laws.
