The Discourse of Control and Consent over Data in EU Data Protection Law and Beyond

by Elettra Biettivia Aegis Paper Series
Wednesday, January 8, 2020

In the European Union, the General Data Protection Regulation has recently come into force, introducing stringent new criteria for consent and stronger protections for individuals. Yet the entrenched long-term focus on users’ control and consent fails to protect consumers who face increasingly intrusive data collection practices.

Roles And Responsibilities Of Information Intermediaries

by Wolfgang Schulzvia Aegis Paper Series
Thursday, November 14, 2019

While many countries have initially opted to give online platforms a “safe harbor,” for speech, we are now witnessing trends to weaken that protection. In Europe, this includes the creation of regulatory regimes that aim at reducing misinformation and that specifically address the role of social media platforms and other information intermediaries. Regulatory attempts such as the German Network Enforcement Act (NetzDG) can serve as an example. The paper analyzes those approaches from a human-rights perspective and argues that the platforms’ ability to assess the context of content plays a major role in determining whether “new school regulation” sets proportional limits to freedom of speech.

Verified Accountability

by Evelyn Douekvia Aegis Paper Series
Tuesday, September 17, 2019

The way platforms currently conduct content moderation has been delegitimized, and new forms of governance will need to emerge to meet the demands of the moment. Semi-independent and transparent self-regulatory oversight mechanisms offer significant advantages. As the actors closest to the front line, platforms will always need to play a significant role in drawing lines for online speech, given the high-volume, fast-moving and context-dependent nature of the decisions involved.
