The Ethics and Regulation of Digital Privacy
CMT postdoctoral research fellow Sacha Molitorisz is researching the ethics and regulation of digital privacy. Building on his 2018 PhD, Sacha takes Kantian ethics as a starting point for articulating a coherent account of what privacy is, why it matters and how we might best protect it.
Ultimately, Sacha argues, a satisfactory regime for protecting privacy online requires a robust regulatory framework, supplemented by non-legal measures. The specifics of these protections will be explored in forthcoming journal articles and a book to be published by New South Press in 2020.
