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.

May Book Club

Mark your calendars for YPFP NY's next book club meeting, which will take place on Monday, May 7 at 6:30 PM at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe in SoHo. This month, we've selected Ronen Bergman's New York Times bestseller, "Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations". "Rise and Kill First" is the first definitive history of the Mossad, Shin Bet, and the IDF’s targeted killing programs, hailed by The New York Times as “an exceptional work, a humane book about an incendiary subject.” YPFP's monthly book club is a great opportunity to informally meet and connect with an engaged group of fellow bookworms who enjoy reading everything from history to the latest in international affairs literature.
