This chapter discusses the reconciliation of the right to privacy with the right of free expression. Part one comments on the first stage of the national debate on privacy, from the early 1960s to the late 1980s. Part two relates to the years 1990 to 1993, from the first Calcutt Report to the second one. Part three studies the events that took place after the adoption of the Human Rights Act 1998 and focuses on the new case law relating to the protection of privacy. Part four comments on the present state of English law, then the chapter shows how, in two other European countries — France and Germany — the courts have approached the issue of privacy as a right and finally the chapter offers a few remarks on the evolution of English law.
