Ingrida Milkaite and Eva Lievens awarded
For its first edition, the Stefano Rodotà Award goes to Ingrida Milkaite and Eva Lievens, for their project which investigates privacy and data protection from a children’s rights perspective.
Their thrilling project caught the Jury’s attention for its critical and forward-looking analysis of children’s rights to privacy and data protection in the digital era, investigating whether there is a need for a re-conceptualisation of those rights in the light of recent legal, technological and social developments. The holistic child rights-oriented approach of the project and the consideration of new emerging data processing practices (e.g. on the basis of artificial intelligence and machine-learning) convinced the Jury of the necessity of this research.
