Location: U-Residence, VUB, Brussels
Add to personal calendar

Data subject rights are a key element of European data protection law. They can operate as a driver for data protection law enforcement, while being particularly vulnerable to any failures of data protection compliance. They are often at the forefront of tensions between the different actors of data protection – data subjects, data controllers, and the data protection authorities that are regularly confronted with very significant amounts of related complaints.

This workshop will explore some uncertain and contested issues currently surrounding the exercise of data subject rights. It is organised in the context of the 'Articulating Law, Technology, Ethics & Politics: Issues of Enforcement and Jurisdiction of EU Data Protection Law under and beyond the GDPR' (ALTEP DP) project.

11:00-12:30 - Panel 1: Synchronising data rights: An inevitable approach, or borderline practice? Moderator: Gloria González Fuster (VUB), Speakers: Alexandra Giannopoulou (University of Amsterdam - Digital Freedom Fund), René Mahieu (VUB), Liesa Boghaert (time.lex), Benny Rolle (University of Goettingen).

13:30-15:00 - Panel 2: Data subject rights & damage claims: What do we (not) know?

Moderator: Michalina Nadolna Peeters (EDPS), Speakers: Tim Walree (Radboud Universiteit), Suzanne Vergnolle (Le Cnam), Peter Hense (Spirit Legal).
