How can privacy be effectively protected in the age of digital networks? What can the government and the law do and when do citizens have to act for themselves? How can innovations be promoted and data be used for the common good without infringing the basic rights of the data subjects?
Many questions are still unsettled, but require interdisciplinary debates. The independent Foundation for Data Protection addresses this necessity as the editor of the volume no. 1 of the new publication series "DatenDebatten", which deals with the future of informational self-determination. Volume 1 combines utopias and dystopias on data protection and looks at the upcoming developments in the protection of privacy.
