(En)lightening Talk - Mona Winau - KASTEL/Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main
Updated: Aug 10, 2022
SCOTLIN is delighted to announce another seminar from the (En)lightening Talks series. On the 16th August 2022 (h. 14.00-15.00), Ms Mona Winau (Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main) will hold a presentation as part of our series of (en)lightening talks on Enforcement Deficits in Data Protection Law – Significant Challenges for Data Protection Authority under GDPR.
Ms Winau's talk is a hybrid event. You can join us via Zoom or in person at the University of Stirling, Central Campus, room CC 3.04.
This event will be moderated by Prof Guido Noto La Diego (University of Stirling). The event's discussant will be (online) Mariano Delli Santi (Open Rights Group), and (in-person) Prof Burkhard Schafer (University of Edinburgh).
The seminar will discuss the importance of an effective regulation regime on data protection law to ensure strong protection of fundamental rights as well as the associated major challenges. Reducing the enforcement deficits was one of the key objectives of the reform of European data protection law. Despite far-reaching modifications, shortcomings remain. The main elements of the reformed regulatory concept will be outlined. Consideration will be given to the network of European data protection authority. Reasons for the remaining enforcement deficits and approaches to address them are to be discussed.
Ms Mona Winau is a visiting researcher at the universities of Edinburgh and Stirling, PhD candidate at Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main.
