Data Protection and Digital Rights
Latin America and the Caribbean and Europe have seen considerable developments to establish and strengthen digital and data protection rights. Both regions undertake efforts aimed at giving their citizens more power to decide how and for what purpose data is collected online, and how governments can give their citizens actionable digital rights.

However, both regions also face considerable challenges in achieving these objectives, driven for example by resource-poor enforcement, industry opposition and conflicts of interest by governments hesitant to limit their own authority. 

This panel will shed light on major challenges as well as on the options to overcome them, including potential learnings to be shared between the regions.

After the session, the speakers will be available for questions and answers in an interactive Q&A session. Questions can be submitted via an online form and will be answered by the speakers in real time.

Moderation: Prof. Dr. Eduardo Magrani
