This chapter focuses on the right to freedom of expression and the right to respect for private life. In Europe, national laws protect reputation and privacy—interests that may fall to be protected by the right to respect for private life—in different ways. Reputation is protected by an action for defamation; privacy by an action for invasion of privacy. However, there is also a human right to freedom of expression. Therefore, a balance has to be reached between both the right to private life and the right to freedom of expression. The chapter then looks at the impact of these rights on the private international rules that operate in cases of international defamation and invasion of privacy actions.
