Security, privacy and surveillance in European policy documents

I have a new article out now in International Data Privacy Law. The article is part of the work on PRISMS (no, not that one, rather the EU funded study into security, privacy and surveillance), which you can also find in this report. All the authors of that report should be acknowledged in this article too (and I sincerely hope that they are in the article text).

Here's the abstract for the article, which if you have access, you can get here

  • Through an examination of security and privacy policy documents from the EU, selected European states and the USA, this article examines problem construction and policy making in the interrelated fields of security, privacy, and surveillance.
  • This horizontal analysis, across a set of documents, provides insights into the way these topics are viewed within the policy-making process.
  • The analysis also shows the development of EU governmentality around security and privacy, and indicates that whilst the policy discourse of security and privacy is not homogeneous, the influence of European-level governance on security and privacy practices is significant.
  • The study aims to make a contribution to the literature on security and privacy and on the international context for policy making.
