dc.description.abstract Unprecedented advances in Information Communication Technologies (ICT) and their involvement in most of private and public activities are revolutionizing our daily life and the way we relate to our environment. If, on the one hand, the new developments promise to make people’s lives more comfortable or more secure, on the other hand, complex social and legal issues arise, in terms of fundamental rights and freedoms. The objective of this study is to envisage some of the main legal challenges posed by the new Ambient Intelligence technologies (AmI) and in particular by the new security enforcement technologies for privacy and data protection. en
