Yale ISP Big Data Symposium

April 6, 2014 - 1:00pm
New Haven, Connecticut

EFF activist April Glaser will join the "Big Data and the Global Community – Transnational Law & Institutions" panel at the Big Data Symposium organized by the Yale Information Society Project. The event is free and open to the public. Please, join us!

Big Data and the Global Community – Transnational Law & Institutions
Even if domestic laws do not restrict one country from engaging in bulk data collection of other nations’ citizens outside of its own borders, transnational law and institutions might hem in these practices. Do universal human rights obligations prohibit bulk data collection? What role, if any, should the United Nations play in providing oversight? Given reports that data collected under these programs have been used to target drone strikes, are the laws of war implicated?
