Privacy - Paul Keating Lecture

"Privacy in a broad sense is under attack these days on a range of fronts: electronic surveillance, terrorism laws, growing police powers, business practices associated with information mining and marketing, and new technologies." Indeed, as Former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating states, there seems to be no general agreement on what privacy actually means. In this environment, various law reform bodies have been struggling to develop laws that would enshrine some sort of right to privacy. In general, the media has resisted any such laws.
Paul Keating considers these issues in a lecture hosted by the University of Melbourne's Centre for Advanced Journalism.
