概要 This paper presents a description of the early stages of a collaborative, cross-cultural, multidisciplinary project that seeks to investigate how privacy online is understood in Japan as compared with the United Kingdom. Much still remains to be done - and perharps there will be a lot more to report by the time this paper is presented at conference. Previous studies have examined this topic in the context of Western democracies, and to a limited extent also in the Middle East. But relatively little attention hax thus far been paid to cross-cultural factors, and those few studies that have addressed this topic have so far been inconclusive about the role of culture in relation to privacy issues and Internet behaviour. The Internet is now emphatically a global phenomenon with little respect for national, cultural or language differences. It is not under the hegemony of any one social group, whether at local, national ore regional level. In recognition of this, the study aims to address the gap in our knowledge.
