As more and more data is collected, shared and circulated online, should there be a right for this to be deleted, hidden or anonymised at one’s request? In Ctrl + Z: The Right to be Forgotten, Meg Leta Jones analyses this emerging debate and proposes new ways of thinking about the right to privacy in an increasingly digital world. While the book certainly raises questions for further study, this is an inspiring and pleasurable read that offers some guidance as to how to navigate this complex and controversial policy issue, writes Monica Horten.
