Law and Data

 

Having benefitted from technical developments, data gathering, collection and analysis are becoming increasingly important. Access to the processing of personal data by various actors (governments and businesses, but also voluntary disclosure by the individual) affects the individual as well as the fabric of society. What (ordering, protecting, controlling...) role does the law play in the interdependencies created by an increasingly digitized society?

This question is being explored concretely in a research project on privacy in the laws of the digitized society. Further activities in this research area are directed at networking researchers from various diverse disciplinary perspectives who are looking at the topics of digitization, data, society and law.
