More Information
This Research Handbook is an insightful overview of the key rules, concepts and tensions in privacy and data protection law. It highlights the increasing global significance of this area of law, illustrating the many complexities in the field through a blend of theoretical and empirical perspectives.

Providing an excellent in-depth analysis of global privacy and data protection, it explores multiple regional and national jurisdictions, bringing together interdisciplinary international contributions from Europe and beyond. Chapters cover critical topics in the field, including key features of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), border surveillance, big data, artificial intelligence, and biometrics. It also investigates the relationship between privacy and data protection law and other fields of law, such as consumer law and competition law.

With its detailed exploration and insights into privacy and data protection, this Research Handbook will prove a useful resource for information and media law students as well as academics researching fields such as data protection and privacy law and surveillance or security studies.
Critical Acclaim
‘The editors, three leaders in the field, have structured this Research Handbook well, starting with a global survey of developments in key regions. The relationships between data protection and other disciplines (or other branches of law) continue this comprehensive approach. Finally, issues concerning key types of personal data, or situations of their use, are highlighted. Many chapter contributors are well known leaders in the field, and the others are emerging scholars expert in the cutting-edge issues that they cover.’
– Graham Greenleaf, University of New South Wales, Australia
