Meet the Author
About the series
As Brussels Privacy Hub, one of our main objectives is to create a network of leading thinkers, coming from around the world and having different backgrounds, to foster an interchange of ideas with the ultimate goal to produce high quality privacy research. That is why, in 2017, the Brussels Privacy Hub launched the “Meet the Author Series”.
The concept at the basis of these lunchtime debates is to give authors of recent books and articles on privacy related issues the opportunity to present their works before a critical audience composed by academics, private sector practitioners, policymakers, fundamental rights advocates, European officials and so on.
The series hosts both experienced and leading thinkers, as well as younger scholars who wrote distinguished papers. Normally, we invite as discussants two famous experts in the field, one with a background in academia and one with a background as practitioner. They will give their review, which is followed by a reaction of the author. We end with a Q&A with the public on crucial questions.
Hereafter, a list of our “Meet the Author” events. Videos and summaries are available to ensure that those who could not attend are informed on the key points of the debates. The series is an initiative of Dr Hielke Hijmans of the Hub, who also chairs the debates.
