Abstract

The challenge of meeting security requirements (of a nation-state) and the privacy needs of citizens is perhaps a political goal, but it is enabled by technology. Attacks on citizens tend to move the balance towards security, whilst civil liberties groups often act as a counter to not over-correct security, so as to guarantee privacy. This paper explores Australian attitudes towards privacy and surveillance during the pandemic. We consider a fundamental question: Has the pandemic changed the perception of Australian citizens with regard to their fundamental right to privacy? We surveyed Australian attitudes to privacy in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic and report on some interesting results.
