This conference will consider the varying, and to some extent conflicting, international perspectives on privacy and its points of tension with freedom of expression. We will begin with foundational concerns of legal theory: How is privacy conceived of and defined in various legal systems? To what extent does (and should) privacy serve as a limiting principle on freedom of expression? We will then move to more pragmatic questions about how these issue play out on the ground. Do heads of state have privacy rights that limit what can be said about them by the media and citizens? How do individuals with privacy concerns navigate the varying protections offered by different legal regimes? What challenges are posed to media and online entities that must determine how to comply with differing standards?
