Privacy Law and Policy Reporter
Graham Greenleaf and Nigel Waters
Our editorial in PLPR 10.10 thanked everyone who had made our first 100 issues possible. Our 101st issue sees us saying goodbye to our previous publisher, LexisNexis, and charting an new course.
PLPR’s editorial team and approach remains the same, and we are pleased to welcome new expertise to our Editorial Board. Chris Connolly is a principal of Galexia Consulting and Director of the Financial Services Consumer Policy Centre at the University of New South Wales. Katrine Evans teaches privacy law at Victoria University, Wellington New Zealand, and is completing a text on NZ privacy law. David Lindsay is a Senior Fellow at the Centre for Media and Communications Law, University of Melbourne, and a regular contributor to PLPR, particularly on the common law and privacy. Sociologist Professor James Rule from the State University of New York is the author of numerous influential studies of privacy protection and is preparing a comparative study of Asia-Pacific jurisdictions.
We will be taking a new approach to many aspects of PLPR over the coming issues. The twenty page limit of previous publishing will no longer be a constraint, as is obvious from this expanded issue. Next issue will introduce a regular ‘States + Territories’ round-up, to join the regular ‘Codewatch’ in this issue. There will be a renewed emphasis on extensive coverage of decisions in ‘Cases + Complaints’ now that Australian privacy law is producing and documenting them in significant quantities (as has occurred in New Zealand for some time). The digital version of PLPR will give us the opportunity for innovations which will make PLPR the window into a wider body of privacy information.
We hope you will join us in our monthly exploration of the development of privacy law and policy in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
