The Philosophy of Informational Privacy

My work on informational privacy and surveillance centers around the idea of a political account of the value of communications privacy. In contrast to individualist negative-right justifications of privacy, I think that the most sustainable defense of privacy as a value must refer to the contribution of unsurveilled communications to democratic self-determination.
