CMPF Academic Seminar:
Regulating Remembering – On the Proposed EU Right to be Forgotten
Viktor Mayer-Schönberger - Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford
Humans forget, the our digital tools and the Internet remember. What are the consequences of comprehensive digital memory – especially its challenges? And is the "right to be forgotten" as proposed by the European Union draft regulation on privacy an appropriate, effective, and efficient answer? Shall we adopt it? These are the core questions I will endeavor to answer in this talk, with a special emphasis on the constraints of governance structures and mechanisms online.
Viktor Mayer-Schönberger is Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford. Before coming to Oxford he spent a decade on the faculty at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. He is, most recently, the author of the awards-winning "Delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age" (Princeton University Press, also available in Italian, German, and Korean).
