Annual Conference 2016 Resources

The Information Law and Policy Centre held its second annual workshop on 9th November 2016. The workshop’s theme was: ‘Restricted and Redacted: Where now for human rights and digital information control?’.

The workshop brought together a wide range of legal academics, lawyers, policy-makers and interested parties. A number of key themes emerged in our panel sessions including the tensions present in balancing Article 8 and Article 10 rights; the new algorithmic and informational power of commercial actors; the challenges for law enforcement; the liability of online intermediaries; and future technological developments.
