Abstract

The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 signals both the importance of forms of surveillance as techniques of policing and also the human rights apprehensions which those strategies engender. The Act is explained and analysed according to rights-based standards as well as its fit with the development of an “information society”.

Keywords: Surveillance, Security, Information Society, Risk, Communications, Privacy
