This book examines the emerging Irish jurisprudence on privacy rights, focusing in particular on how media interference can infringe such rights and on the interaction with the right to freedom of expression.

It examines the topic from a comparative perspective, making extensive reference to relevant case law from both common and civil law jurisdictions as well as to decisions of the European Court of Human Rights. While the progress of the draft Privacy Bill published in 2006 appears to have stalled, the issue of how privacy rights may be protected is coming before the courts on an increasingly frequent basis.

This groundbreaking new work provides an in-depth and comprehensive analysis of this area of the law. It discusses potential legal strategies for the protection of privacy rights, considering, in particular, the question of whether privacy should be protected by legislation or by the incremental development of the law by the courts.
