The AU Internet Governance Lab in partnership with the Internet Society Washington, DC Chapter (ISOC-DC) is convening experts and stakeholders from industry, government, and civil society to explore the problem, path, and promise of data privacy and surveillance. The half-day event will focus on current and emerging issues in data privacy, including public perceptions of data privacy, implications of GDPR and a possible data privacy framework in the US, the relationship between Internet governance and data privacy, and the human rights implications of the privacy debate.

The Data Privacy Convening will take place on Monday, November 26, 2018 from 12:00pm - 4:00pm in the School of International Service (SIS) Abramson Family Founders Room on the AU campus.
