Resource titleA Surveillance Society: Executive Summary of Qualitative Research
Author(s)Oliver Murphy
Publication/ sourceInformation Commissioner's Office/Central Office of Information
Date published15/11/2007
Summary text/ abstractThe Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) wanted to explore and understand public awareness and perceptions of the various forms of surveillance in society, which can be defined as involving 'gathering, recording, processing, monitoring, analysing, sorting and flow of personal information, movements, lifestyle habits and behaviours', including in particular the less obvious 'electronic footprints'. Qualitative research was commissioned to explore, with a cross-section of the general public, what they feel are the effects of surveillance on their privacy, society, levels of choice, power and empowerment. The study also set out to understand what safeguards the public feel might be necessary to control any perceived risks.
