The ECMI and the University of Siena hosted an international workshop on data protection and collection

Data Protection Workshop at the ECMI:
On May 28th and 29th, the ECMI hosted a workshop organised with the University of Siena as part of their Jean Monnet Project ‘Boosting European Security and Law’. In attendance were four scholars from the University of Siena as well as guest speakers from Serbia, Croatia and Hungary as well as the participation of four internal ECMI researchers (see full list below).

Titled ‘Focus on Personal Data, Ethnic Data and Security’, the first day of the workshop had a broader agenda covering data protection aspects related to competition law, the platform economy, tax authorities, and nationality/citizenship. This was followed by a second day which concentrated specifically on data protection and collection in the context of ethnicity data, featuring presentations which outlined the empirical situations in Serbia, Croatia, Hungary and the United Kingdom. This provided useful insight for the workshop participants but also the internal ECMI research team where data collection in the context of minorities has long been a topic of relevance.

The larger project which the workshop formed part of will be concluded at an end of project conference in Siena in June 2020.
