My new online discussion series, “Europe Calling”, has started well in mid-December. The idea is to bring Europe closer to its citizens. The concept is simple but effective: Using a “Webinar” device on their personal computers, hundreds of people can attend discussions on European politics and thus participate in European democracy.
One topic that is on many people’s mind at the moment is the EU Data Protection Reform. Having had a very fruitful first discussion on that issue in German, I now want to invite English speakers to participate in the debate as well. Therefore, I invited the “father” of the reform, Green Member of the European Parliament and rapporteur of the dossier, Jan Philipp Albrecht, as well as data protection activists Estelle Massé (accessnow) and Facebook conqueror Max Schrems to discuss with you the Data Protection Reform.
Please find here the recording of the online discussion held on 8 March:
