Session teaser

Is the government a watchdog or a safeguard for information freedom?

Session description

The goal of our discussion is to broaden the aspects of information governance online. As we would go from simple research tools to the general definition of privacy and its protection. And as we cover data privacy through the role of public institutions, civil society, businesses and international agencies on data regulation. Considering the role of GDPR for EU and non-EU states more issues come up later. Such as: the role of the Government and its bodies, criminal investigation data, personal data usage, corporate responsibility, GDPR’s role, protection of files, etc. We will go into a dialogue between the actors of the digital platforms and their rights and responsibilities. Europe is represented by geographical regions – from West to the East as well as North and the South.


The format would include some interactive discussions followed by comments of field experts. The key is to give a variety of views and opinions on a wide spectrum of data protection regulations.

  1. GDPR experience of new EU members along with non-EU CoE members
  2. Administration of DNS from ICANN’s and UN WSIS perspective
  3. Merits and challenges of decentralization and potentially competing policies
  4. The role of government in our digital applications and DPAs
  5. Civil society and its role for information freedom and digital apps usage
