On Monday 18 November 2013, LSTS members Niels van Dijk and Raphaël Gellert will give a presentation titled ‘A Risk to a Right?” Beyond Data Protection Risk Assessments’ in the context of Metajuridica department’s Research Gatherings. The presentation will deal with the conceptual novelty of ‘a risk to a right’, and with some of the many question it raises several questions: How can policy makers, regulators and lawyers know about risks to fundamental rights and freedoms before a project or a technology is implemented? Who will get to decide what constitutes a risk to a right, and according to which methodologies and principles? Which are the rights and freedoms in this context? The event will take place on Monday 18 November between 12:30 and 14:00 at VUB (room 4C306).
