New Privacy Advocates Website Launched

When surveillance practices emerge, who mobilizes against them, how, and with what effect?

The new Privacy Advocates website has been introduced to facilitate communication between individuals and groups that have emerged from civil society, as well as researchers and other people in the wider community.

The idea for this website originated from Professor Colin Bennett's latest book The Privacy Advocates: Resisting the Spread of Surveillance. While conducting this research, the lack of awareness and communication between the world’s privacy advocates became apparent.

This is the first comprehensive website to examine privacy and data protection from the perspective of civil society, rather than from that of law or technology.
