March 1: FPF’s Discussion About Privacy Rights and Human Rights

March 1: FPF’s Discussion About Privacy Rights and Human Rights

The recent online-inspired political upheaval in the Mid-East, occurring at the same time as U.S. and European government agencies are asking for comment about online privacy, show the importance of having an integrated understanding of both privacy and the freedom of association. The events unfolding in Egypt concern revolutionary political moments, but the Obama campaign, the Tea Party, and the daily activities of innumerable charities and social causes show that modern associations occur extremely frequently through social networks and related online services.

Professor Swire’s paper discusses the ways that the rights of both privacy and freedom of association should fit together. Swire will be interviewed by Jeff Rosen, Professor of Law at George Washington University Law School and legal affairs editor of The New Republic.

WHEN:

Tuesday, March 1

3 p.m. – 4 p.m. EST

WHO:
Peter Swire
, FPF Advisory Board member; Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress; C. William O’Neill Professor of Law at the Ohio State University

Professor Jeff Rosen, Professor of Law at George Washington University Law School

Jules Polonetsky and Christopher Wolf, co-chairs, Future of Privacy Forum

WHAT:
Release of “Social Networks, Privacy, and Freedom of Association: How Individual Rights Can Both Encourage and Reduce Uses of Personal Information” by Professor Swire
