Privacy

The Privacy initiative focuses on privacy policy and its role in maintaining trustworthiness. Our research aims to help people understand current transparency mechanisms in order to highlight the access and sharing of their personal information as well as the possible outcomes (both positive and negative) associated with this use of information.

IPRI’s work on privacy covers a wide variety of topics with worldwide implications affecting the international privacy policy landscape.
