Mon 16 Apr, 4.30pm: Anja Møller Pedersen (Copenhagen) – Reconciling the Right to Privacy with Freedom of Expression in the EU legal order

We are pleased to confirm that the next IP/IT/Media Law Discussion Group seminar will take place on Monday 16 April 2018 at 4.30pm, in Room LG.08, David Hume Tower. Our guest speaker, Anja Møller Pedersen from University of Copenhagen, will present her research on the following topic:

Reconciling the Right to Privacy with Freedom of Expression in the EU legal order

The fundamental rights to privacy, data protection and freedom of expression all play a crucial role in our everyday lives, online as well as offline. They are closely interrelated, but at the same time both mutually enforcing and conflicting. In my PhD, I seek to tease out their underlying rationales, and explore how they are reflected in EU law, and how they influence the ways in which the rights interact and conflict. In my presentation I will focus mainly on how the underlying rationales of privacy are reflected in EU law.

As always, all students and staff are welcome and no registration is required. The talk will be followed by a Q&A section as well as a further informal discussion, where refreshments will be provided.
