As lawmakers develop or update data protection around the world, we seek to organise a roundtable to hear about ongoing process in Tunisia, India, Pakistan, Canada, the EU and more! This session is designed to discuss both the creation and the enforcement of data protection and privacy rights, and actuals in particular. The objective of this roundtable is to learn more about ongoing negotiations, similarities and differences between laws, and discuss possible need for global cooperation. To do so, we will invite few speakers to deliver introductory remarks and few people to participate as respondent. The roundtable will be open to the public and should lead to an interactive debate on the global state of data protection.
