Session description

This flash session will cover recent developments within the so-called "Right to be Forgotten" in Europe and around the world, with particular emphasis on a report written for the Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA) titled, "Information Not Found: The “Right to Be Forgotten” as an Emerging Threat to Media Freedom in the Digital Age."

After a brief presentation, the floor will be open for discussion and Q&A.


Since it is a 30-minute flash session, the organizer will present some key developments since last year's EuroDIG session, and then open the floor to discussion.
