Abstract

The paper explores the difference a right to privacy enshrined in the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 would make to New Zealand's landscape. While examining the potential impact of a right to privacy, the paper discusses the different treatment privacy receives in a number of jurisdictions. The paper argues that a right to privacy would allow the courts to explore the value New Zealand society places on privacy and guidance on its treatment within New Zealand's legal landscape.
