The International Observatory on Vulnerable People In data protection

The Mission of the Observatory

The International Observatory on Vulnerable People in Data Protection (Vulnera) is a research dissemination and networking platform focusing on the multifaceted connotations that the notion of human ‘vulnerability’ may assume in the data protection and privacy domains. Established under the Brussels Privacy Hub and Future of Privacy Forum Europe, the Observatory absolves primarily two functions:

Research and Education

By documenting a wide variety of resources, ranging from academic works to policy documents and judgments, arranged in thematic sections, tackling the vulnerabilities of people in data processing from different points of view (e.g., within the processing or as an outcome of the data processing; depending on gender, age, sexual orientation, the status of migrant, etc.).

Dissemination

By creating a multidisciplinary network of researchers, practitioners, public officials and activists with complementary expertise in order to promote a debate (through events, webinars, conferences, research projects) towards a common and deeper understanding of the factors affecting the vulnerability of individuals and groups in the digital world. Among our goals is to strengthen the involvement of civil society in academic research by facilitating the contacts between researchers and human rights activists and organisations.

Resources

Disclaimer: The resources are arranged per thematic sections to facilitate the consultation. However, we are aware of the intersections and overlaps thereof. We are also aware that pre-identifying categories of vulnerable people in data processing is not possible, vulnerability being a largely contextual and elusive concept. We are not claiming to be exhaustive, but to initiate a discussion.

Do you have any suggestions as to how improve the repository? Have you come across any resource that should be included in the repository? Contact us.
