Living with an Endemic Virus: EU Data Protection Law

In this talk C4E-veteran Mireille Hildebrandt will discuss how EU data protection law is well suited to address the myriad balancing acts required when constitutional democracies face the prospect of hosting an enduring endemic virus. This concerns issues of human autonomy, confidentiality of communication, non-discrimination and freedom of information when preparing a return to the new normal, including workplace safety, physical distancing, contact tracing, immunity passports, and medical research. Focus of the discussion will be the aim of preventing infringements of all relevant fundamental rights, and the use of the purpose limitation principle as the core of the GDPR.

This is an online event. It will be live streamed on the Centre for Ethics YouTube Channel at 10am (4pm CET), Monday, June 15. Channel subscribers will receive a notification at the start of the live stream. (For other events in the series, and to subscribe, visit YouTube.com/c/CentreforEthics.)
