  • Graham Greenleaf is a Professor of Law at the University of New South Wales, Australia, where he specialises in the relationships between information technology and law. He is a co-founder and Co-Director of the free-access Internet law service, the Australasian Legal Information Institute. In 2010 he took the lead in establishing the Asian Privacy Scholars Network. He was General Editor of the monthly Privacy Law and Policy Reporter 1994-2006, and since then has been Asia-Pacific Editor for Privacy Laws & Business International Report. He co-editedGlobal Privacy Protection (Edward Elgar, 2008) with J Rule. In 2010 he was made a member of the Order of Australia (AM) for his contributions to advancing free access to legal information and to the protection of privacy.

  • "Rich in legal and political detail, and comprehensive in scope, Graham Greenleaf's new book is an important reminder of the global reach of contemporary data privacy law. It stands as a model for the comparative analysis of data protection policy, not only in Asia, but elsewhere as well." - Professor Colin J. Bennett, Department of Political Science, University of Victoria, Co-author of The Governance of Privacy

    "He provides insightful analysis of the development of each country's data privacy laws, based on his in-depth understanding of the history and political, economic, social and historical background of each country. Further, given that data privacy laws are quite new and recently developed in most of Asian countries and that there are no sufficient database thereon, his achievement is more amazing in this respect. Particularly from the perspective of a privacy law specialist in South Korea, where its data privacy laws and regulations keep radically changing and are complicated, I cannot but highly praise his insightful analysis of the fundamental reasons and momentums of the changes in Korea." - Kwang Bae Park, Attorney, head of data protection at Lee & Ko, Seoul

    "Data privacy law has become a topic of global concern, and the Asia-Pacific region is the source of many of the most interesting developments in recent years. Professor Greenleaf's book is a remarkable work of privacy law and comparative law scholarship, and both gives much detailed and useful information on the specifics of national laws in Asian countries, and provides a high-level analysis of the trends that they evidence. It will be a mandatory part of the bookshelf of anyone interested in the global aspects of data protection." - Christopher Kuner, Editor-in-chief, International Data Privacy Law

    "Professor Greenleaf has done a great service to privacy scholarship by publishing this thorough analysis of the data privacy approaches and laws throughout the Asian region. Professor Greenleaf has deep roots in the region and is ideally placed to describe and critique these developments. His book does not merely describe these laws but places them in an historical, cultural and legal context that readers from both within and beyond the region will find insightful and useful." - Blair Stewart, Assistant Privacy Commissioner, New Zealand

    "Graham Greenleaf has thought more and more deeply about data protection and privacy laws in Asia than most scholars or practitioners. This masterful volume offers detailed studies of the key jurisdictions as well as thoughtful - and thought-provoking - analysis of regional trends and possible futures. The rise of mass surveillance has led to a great deal of pessimism in this field, but Professor Greenleaf offers a cautiously optimistic assessment of the role law can play in counterbalancing government and corporate interests in defence of privacy." - Professor Simon Chesterman, Dean of the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law

    "This volume will help everyone who processes personal data anywhere in Asia to understand the obligations that accompany the processing. Everyone outside of Asia who does business with Asian consumers - or who advises those who do - needs this book." - Robert Gellman, former Chief Counsel to the Government Information Subcommittee in the US House of Representatives
