We’re hosting a full day discussion on the Data Protection paper, on the 19th of January 2018 (this Friday). The deadline for the data protection consultation submission is the 31st of January, and we thought this might be an opportunity to debate specific aspects of the paper, to understand the issues better. We plan to discuss important parts of the paper, segment by segment. This discussion is supported by Facebook, Mozilla, Star and Google.

Note that this discussion will be under CHATHAM HOUSE RULES.

We’ve got 70+ confirmations for the discussion across civil society, industry, government, think tanks, media and tech, so we’re hoping for a fairly vibrant discussion, from multiple perspectives. We are moving registrations to wait-list, so in case you’d like to apply, please do, and we’ll confirm, pending cancellations.

Please apply for the wait-list here.
