Publisher Comments:

This annual report by EPIC and Privacy International provides and overview of key privacy topics and reviews the state of privacy in over 70 countries around the world. the report outlines legal protections, new challenges, and important issues and events relating to privacy. Privacy and Human Rights 2005 is the most comprehensive report on privacy and data protection ever published.

The Privacy and Human Rights 2005 report documents the continued expansion of government surveillance authority. Many countries have pursued new identification schemes, expanded monitoring of communications, weakened data protection laws, and intensified data transfers between public and private sectors.

The report also finds continuing public opposition to identification systems, secret video surveillance, DNA databases, and radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies. The 2005 edition survey tracks the adoption of new data protection and open government laws, and includes new country reports for Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. The 2005 edition of Privacy and Human Rights also includes and expanded table of contents that make it easier to assess developments in particular countries.

The report makes a detailed analysis of the state of technology, surveillance and privacy protection in EU countries. In its attempt to show the actual protection of civil liberties, it becomes a useful tool to understand the present conflict between the need of security and the recognition of fundamental rights in modern democracies. Through the comparison among european countries' regulations, the reader is stimulated to rethink about the actual balance between the possesion of civil liberties and the emergency?s reasons.
