The rule on automated decision making in the General Data Protection Regulation has been the subject of many controversies. Christian Djeffal argues that Art. 22 GDPR is to be reinterpreted as a Law-by-design norm. Instead of discussing questions like the existence of a right to privacy, this provision should be applied in a context sensitive manner in order to fulfill its central function to safeguard rights freedoms and legitimate interests of data subjects. He discusses the implication of this view for current legislative proposals like the EU Artificial Intelligence Act.

Professor Djeffal has kindly given permission to record this webinar and we will make this recording available on our HeLEX site as a podcast for those unable to attend the live session.
