30 - 01/12/2016

With the General Data Protection Regulation coming into effect in May 2018, questions over the application of national laws on a global internet, variations in interpreting digital rights, and challenges in enforcing laws for the internet will feature prominently in policy discussions now, and in the future. An area that requires both deep engagement and excellent leadership from policy makers across the European Union.

In that backdrop, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and Google are jointly organising a panel discussion on information access and internet governance. The event will take place on November 30th, 9:00am- 11:30am, at the FEPS office, Rue Montoyer 40.   Inter alia, the discussion will focus on the right to be forgotten (RTBF), an archetype of a complex internet policy issue. An issue that generates tensions at the interface of Internet governance, human rights, civil liberties and International law. 

This panel discussion will provide an opportunity to hear the latest research on this topic, along with legal and societal perspectives on digital rights, from across the world. In particular, we will hear voices from Latin America where the experience with concepts such as the RTBF has been strikingly different from what we’ve witnessed in Europe or North America.
