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. A book based in part on his PhD, titled ‘Internet Privacy Rights: rights to protect autonomy’, will be published in early 2014 by Cambridge University Press.
