2010 “Privacy Papers for Policy Makers”
Deirdre K. Mulligan and Kenneth A. Bamberger’s “Privacy on the Books and on the Ground” presents findings from the first study of corporate privacy management in fifteen years.
Alessandro Acquisti had two papers included in this journal. “What is Privacy Worth?,” with Leslie John and George Loewenstein, suggest that the value of privacy, while not entirely arbitrary, is highly malleable and sensitive to non-normative factors. And “Misplaced Confidences: Privacy and the Control Paradox,” with Laura Brandimarte and George Loewenstein, highlight how technologies that make individuals feel more in control over the release of personal information may have the unintended consequence of eliciting greater disclosure of sensitive information.
Lorrie Faith Cranor, Patrick Gage Kelley, Lucian Cesca, and Joanna Bresee shares the process and development of a standardized, tabular “nutrition label” for online privacy policies in “Standardizing Privacy Notices: An Online Study of the Nutrition Label Approach.”
Chris Hoofnagle, Joseph Turow, Jennifer King, and Su Li’s “How Different are Young Adults from Older Adults When it Comes to Information Privacy Attitudes and Policies?” concludes that young adult Americans hunger for increased privacy, even while they participate in an online reality that is optimized to increase revelation of personal data.
Ira Rubinstein explores co-regulatory approaches to privacy in which government plays a role in setting requirements for industry guidelines and imposing sanctions for non-compliance in “Privacy and Regulatory Innovation: Moving Beyond Voluntary Codes.”
