Brussels Privacy Hub Co-founder Prof. Paul De Hert and Member Bárbara da Rosa Lazarotto will speak at the third Online lecture series of NORFACE GOVERNANCE. Titled “Should the state be smart?“, the lecture will also feature Prof. Jean-Bernard Auby (Science Po) as discussant.
The abstract is as follows.
“Smart” has become a fashion trend buzzword which has been adopted by governments in pursuit of objectivity and rationality. This pursuit of “smartness” has posed new constitutional and political challenges that need to be addressed. This lecture reflects on the question “smartness to whom?” and whether governments can, and should, be smart at all.
The lecture will take place both online and at the University of Luxembourg on 1 March 2023 at 12:30 CET.
