The Maastricht Centre for European Law, in collaboration with the Maastricht European Centre on Privacy and Cybersecurity (ECPC), is launching a call for papers for a workshop on Digitalisation, Ethics and EU Fundamental Rights.
The debate on the impact of digitalization on EU fundamental rights and the development of ethical principles is gradually gaining attention. In the context of digitalization, new and emerging technologies - such as IoT, blockchain and smart cities, AI, Big Data, etc. - pose challenges and threats in relation to the existing EU fundamental rights framework. The workshop Digitalisation, Ethics and EU Fundamental Rights aims to contribute to the academic and policy debate by discussing these highly important questions in an interdisciplinary setting. It aims to include speakers from law, political science, philosophy (ethics), social sciences and technology. We expressly encourage both junior (PhD or PostDoc level) and senior researchers to apply. Given the applied nature of NOVA-EU project, we strongly encourage participants to reflect on the problems also from the policy perspective with the view of offering policy recommendations during the workshop.
If you are interested to participate as a speaker and deliver a paper, please upload a 300-500 words abstract of your paper by 31 October 2019, together with a short bio, through the online system, available under the following link: https://www.aanmelder.nl/110473/subscribe.
