Data and Democracy: The EU and Cambridge Analytica

In light of the increasing relevance to international relations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, please join James Felton Keith, Chairman of the International Personal Data Trade Association, and Omar Jagen, CEO, MOVAAR, The Gambia, in a panel discussion moderated by New York University's Dr. Colette Mazzucelli about the evolution of personal data and the developments leading to the Cambridge Analytica scandal involving questionable access to the private information of more than 50,000,000 Facebook users. As this public event explores the nexus between data and democracy, different contexts, including The Gambia and Kenya, are highlighted given the reach of Cambridge Analytica, a microtargeting firm, and the corresponding need to protect the personal data of citizens.

Members may RSVP here.
