This chapter outlines the three different case study surveillance practices examined in this book, namely: Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), credit scoring and Neighbourhood Watch. The chapter sets out the “mechanics” of each practice and an analysis of the stakeholders involved in each. These cases were chosen because they represent different kinds of surveillant relations: between citizens and the state (ANPR), citizens and the private sector (credit scoring), and citizens and each other (Neighbourhood Watch). This chapter examines the nature and history of each surveillance practice in the countries under investigation, as well as a stakeholder map for each surveillance practice. In doing so, this chapter highlights the range of organisations involved in these surveillance practices and the degree to which they are intertwined within their institutional settings.
