Synopsis

Is surveillance an acceptable practice to aid state security? Does a person's right to privacy depend on their status? Is it acceptable for companies to use surveillance to increase their profits?

Explore these issues and find out about the latest technology, the media and crime prevention have introduced and the new levels of surveillance that raise questions about what privacy means. Case studies are used to illustrate the subject and fact panels, quotes and statistics allow an informed insight into the discussion and encourage lively debate.

The Ethical Debates series confronts contentious issues affecting people in the 21st century.
