This title describes how privacy and security disputes have shaped the relationship between the EU and US and what this means for the future. We live in an interconnected world, where security problems like terrorism are spilling across borders, and globalized data networks and e-commerce platforms are reshaping the world economy. This means that states' jurisdictions and rule systems clash. How have they negotiated their differences over freedom and security? This book investigates how the EU and US, the two major regulatory systems in world politics, have regulated privacy and security, and how their agreements and disputes have reshaped the transatlantic relationship. It examines how the powers of border-spanning coalitions have waxed and waned, and how globalization has enabled new strategies. The first serious study of how the politics of surveillance has been transformed, it offers a fresh view of the role of information and power in a world of economic interdependence.
