This is the first
report of the first United Nations Special Rapporteur for Privacy. He is
planning to look for a definition of privacy in order to make the understanding
of the right more relevant to a digital age where the internet operates without
borders. The rapporteur is pursuing an analysis of privacy as an essential
right which enables the achievement of an over-arching fundamental right to the
free, unhindered development of one’s personality. Not everyone will find a
definition a good idea, but it is at least a very interesting exercise. The
report also mentiones some important evolutions and cases.

On the site of the
International Justice Resource Center
you can find a good summary of the report.
