[Event] Even though the 16th ESIL Conference in Stockholm has been postponed until 2021, the traditional “current events” discussion will be held online on 10 September 2020 at 15-17.00 CEST, as a joint event between ESIL and the Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice (SCILJ). The theme of the event is ‘Covid-19 and international law: science and disinformation, exceptions and emergencies’.
Prof. Dr. Gloria González Fuster participates in the panel 'Covid-19 and International Law: Science, Tech, Trolls and the Role of Information'. The panelists will address questions about the role of science in political and administrative decision-making, the role of IT for the provision of information about individual and social behaviour to authorities and governments and its impact on privacy rights, as well as the responsibility – legal or otherwise – of social media platforms in removing and preventing misinformation. Other panelists include: Marko Milanovic (Nottingham), Jiří Přibáň (Cardiff) and Philippa Webb (moderator; King’s College, London).
Registration to attend the event is necessary. More information can be found on the official event page.
