Surveillance, Privacy and Trans-Atlantic Relations
Concerns for privacy in the face of increasing governmental surveillance have recently been voiced both in the European Union and the United States.
The purpose of this book, which brings together some of the leading experts in the field of constitutional law, criminal law and human rights both from the US and the EU, is to examine the protection of privacy in the digital era, as well as the challenges that counter-terrorism cooperation between governments pose to human rights.
In particular, the book focuses on transatlantic relationship, considering whether the EU and the US should develop joint transnational mechanisms to protect privacy as a way to safeguard human rights on a reciprocal basis in the two largest constitutional unions worldwide.
