Privacy as Virtue: towards an actor based approach to privacy regulation

Samenvatting

The contemporary legal privacy paradigm is criticized along two lines: First, in a legal dispute individuals are often unable to adequately substantiate their interests relating to privacy; second, privacy is often outweighed by other interests, for example, security. This study will develop an alternative, virtue based approach to privacy regulation, focusing on the responsibilities of the actor (for example the state) of a privacy infringement. The new approach will not balance public interests such as security with individual claims to privacy, but assess whether an actor has lived up to his responsibility to act in a virtuous manner.
