Given the clear privacy implications, big data has become the subject of legal scholarship, with a focus on U.S. consumer, medical, and criminal law. But surprisingly, international policy concerns arising from or exacerbated by big data remain largely unexplored. Yet at the same time, revelations about extraterritorial U.S. bulk data collection and the rise of data privacy standards as an issue in trade agreements show that such international concerns are pressing.
Co-sponsored by the Foreign Affairs in the Internet Age initiative of the Information Society Project at Yale Law School (“FAIA”) and the Yale Journal of Law & Technology (“YJOLT”) and the Oscar M. Rubehausen Fund. This one-day event focuses on big data concerns arising in an international context.
