Info tab content
The handling of personal information by both public and private entities has become one of the central concerns of our time. The use of new technologies and their rapid innovations pose ever new challenges for the protection of privacy. In this half-term course, we study the legal frameworks pertaining to data privacy in the US and the EU and their interaction, we critically examine the policy behind it and we engage in readings (including relevant case law) and discussions surrounding the current topics like government and private surveillance, privacy and media, platforms liability, privacy harms or targeted advertising.
