Abstract

Privacy is an important fundamental human right. It underpins human dignity
and other values such as freedom of association and freedom of speech. However,
privacy is being challenged in the networked society. The use of new technologies
undermines this right because it facilitates the collection, storage, processing and
combination of personal data by security agencies and businesses. This research
note presents the background and agenda of the recently-commenced research
project PRESCIENT, which aims at reconceptualizing the concept of privacy and
developing means for the assessment of privacy impacts.
