On 18 and 19 October, the EDEN Conference of the Europol European Data Protection Experts Network (EDEN) is organised in Rome by Europol and the Academy of European Law (ERA).

The conference addresses issues related to the protection of personal data in the field of law enforcement action, and this year’s title is ‘Human after all: Data Protection in Policing’.

Homo Digitalis has the great honour and pleasure to participate in the panel “(Doin’ it right) Making sure good cops are hunting bad guys – not any other way around”. The panel is chaired by the Data Protection Officer and Head of Europol’s Data Protection Unit, Daniel Drewer, and features high-profile speakers, namely Professor Joe Cannataci (UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Privacy), Dr. Nora Ni Loideain (Director of the Information Law & Policy Centre at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, School of Advanced Study) and Ms. Eline Chivot (Senior Adviser on Digital Policy at European People’s Party).

We will be represented at the conference by our co-founding member and Secretary of our Board, Lefteris Chelioudakis.

We would like to thank the organisers for their kind and honourable invitation to Homo Digitalis and in particular Mrs. Alkmini Giannis and Mr. Jan Ellermann.
