Policy Briefing Note: An International Approach to Data Privacy

CMSI has released a new policy briefing note, An International Approach to Data Privacy by our Faculty Fellow Dr. Aram Sinnreich. With the enforcement of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in effect as of May 2018 and the continuing Facebook-Cambridge Analytica furor, the subject of data privacy has been at the forefront of the news. This policy brief argues that an international approach to standardizing and coordinating proactive data protection policy will play an important role in restoring data security. This is part of an ongoing research agenda conducted across several schools and research centers within American University, geared toward understanding the increasingly central role of data in our public and civic lives.
