Setting the watch privacy and ethics of CCTV surveillance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Summer of 2011 in the United Kingdom has proved to be a tumultuous time for the issue of privacy. The revelations of widespread hacking of the mobile phone voice messages of just about anyone worthy of a story in the newspapers has caused revulsion and raised the prospect of serious reforms, some of which may well touch upon the right to privacy. It is interesting, however, that the revulsion and interest in these types of intrusions is not shared when it comes to CCTV and some of the emerging technological developments up-and-coming which could pose even greater risks of abuse of peoples’ privacy. Setting the Watch explores these and many other issues.
