Privacy and public access in the light of eGovernment: the case of Sweden
2011 (English)In: Information Assurance and Security Ethics in Complex Systems: Interdisciplinary Perspectives / [ed] Dark, M, IGI Global, 2011, 206-225 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter addresses the competing interests of privacy versus public access to information. The chapter explores the collective and individual value of privacy and public access in a manner that considers information at the macrosocial and macroethical level. By using Sweden as a case study, we exemplify the classic and irresolvable tension between issues of information availability and confidentiality, integrity, and privacy. Given that privacy and public access interests will constantly need to be rebalanced, we present the views of government officials due to their unique role in implementing this balance. We conclude with an analysis of the reasonableness of this conduct.
