Els De Busser Participating in Surveillance, Privacy, and Human Rights: The Outlook for 2021 Panel during International Law Weekend
On Thursday 22 October 2020, Els De Busser will participate in the panel "Surveillance, Privacy & Human Rights: The Outlook for 2021" during the International Law Weekend.
Other panelists are Brian Egan, Partner at Steptoe & Johnson, Margaret Hu, Professor of Law and of International Affairs at Penn State Law, Rebecca J. Richards, Director at NSA Office of Civil Liberties and Privacy and Patrick Toomey, Senior Staff Attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union. The panel is moderated by Peter Margulies, Professor of Law at Roger Williams University School of Law.
Surveillance, privacy, and human rights will headline 2021. The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will prompt renewed questions. Debate will persist on Schrems II, in which the EU Court of Justice struck down the transatlantic data transfer pact, Privacy Shield. U.S. courts may address foreign intelligence surveillance. Our distinguished panel will analyze these crucial issues.
The International Law Weekend 2020 is scheduled to be held virtually from 22-24 October 2020. More information about the rest of the conference and how to attend can be found on their website.
