Key Research Interests

Paul’s current research centres around internet related issues: privacy, surveillance, freedom of expression and other human rights. He looks at the role of social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, and how the law deals with our interactions with each other, with businesses and with authorities. His three books: Internet Privacy Rights: Rights to Protect Autonomy (CUP, 2014), The Internet, Warts and All: Free Speech, Privacy and Truth (CUP, 2018) and What Do We Know And What Should We Do About Internet Privacy (Sage, 2020) cover various aspects of this subject. Paul's work also covers such subjects as trolling, fake news and other online harms.
