Every year, in the final week of January, privacy professionals from around the world assemble in the north of Brussels for the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection Conference. In recent years, on the final day, the European Data Protection Law Review awards a young scholar award and hosts a panel to discuss the nominated papers.
In this episode of Serious Privacy, Paul Breibarth and K Royal host the first of this year’s three finalists for the EDPL Award on the podcast. Isabel Hahn holds a Bachelor of Laws degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science, recently completed an internship at NOYB and has just started a new internship with the European Data Protection Supervisor. Her paper focuses on the concept of purpose limitation, and the question whether or not it is still compatible with today’s data economy. Developments in privacy sometimes go so quickly, it is almost impossible to keep up.
