Report "Privacy Matters"
The aim of the research project Data, Privacy and the Individual is to contribute to a better understanding of the ethics of privacy and of differential privacy. The outcomes of the project are seven research papers on privacy, a survey, and this final report, which summarises each research paper, and goes on to offer a set of reflections and recommendation to implement best practices regarding privacy.
Workshops and events
Workshop concept note
Different actors are calling for adequate regulation to mitigate the harmful effects of the Internet. What should this regulation look like, and who is responsible for its implementation? ECFR and Telefónica have launched a series of workshops in London, Berlin, Washington, Brussels and Madrid to discuss these issues.
A view from London
Within the framework of the agreement signed between the European Council of Foreign Relations (ECFR) and Telefónica, a seminar was held in London that brought together more than twenty leading experts from the UK government, academia, civil society, platforms and the private sector to identify the key issues in Internet regulation and identify possible solutions, based on the UK experience.
