Does GDPR have an overreaching effect on information freedom?
The goal of our discussion is to highlight some areas where GDPR seems to limit justified processing of personal data. We will discuss issues of freedom of information, the WHOIS-registry and decentralized peer-to-peer applications. We will also take a look at the burden to innovation in countries outside the European Economic Area where the GDPR does not apply directly and that have no adequacy decision. These countries suffer of serious limitations to participation in the digital economy due to third country rules that limit transfer of personal data.
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.
- GDPR experience of new EU members along with non-EU CoE members
- Administration of DNS from ICANN’s and UN WSIS perspective
- Merits and challenges of decentralization and potentially competing policies
- The role of government in our digital applications and DPAs
- Civil society and its role for information freedom and digital apps usage
