The Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC) 2021 will take place on 3 and 4 June 2021 and will be hosted online bythe Georgetown University Law Center! LSTS reseachers and affiliated reseachers will be virtually present to speak about their work.
On Thursday 3 June 2021, Michalina Nadolna Peeters will present her paper 'The GDPR and the Free Flow of Personal Data: The Tale of Persistent Borders'. The discussion on the paper will be orchestrated by Michael Birnhack. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to attain a consistent protection of personal data and free flow of personal data in the EU. This paper explores how theoretical tensions and broad leeway given to Member States in the GDPR result in the ‘persistence’ of borders understood as a legal event triggering the application of conflict-of-law rules.
On Friday 4 June 2021, Gianclaudio Malgieri and Gloria González Fuster will present their paper 'The Vulnerable Data Subject: A Gendered Data Subject?'. The discussion around the paper will be animated by Kristen Thomasen. The paper investigates the notion of the ‘vulnerable data subject’ from a gender perspective, to question whether gender should be regarded as factor of vulnerability at all, and, if yes, how.
