Dialogue Between International Law and Comparative Law in Data Governance

The 9th Annual Conference of the Asian Privacy Scholars Network (APSN) will be held at National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Hsinchu, Taiwan from August 15 to 16, 2024.

  • The intricate balance of data protection, privacy, free speech, reputation, and platform governance within domestic legal frameworks.
  • Implications of international trade and/or human rights agreements on domestic realms of privacy, data protection, content moderation, platform governance, and AI governance.
  • Data localization strategies and laws.
  • Regulatory approaches on harmful online content, hate speech, and mis/disinformation.
  • Comparative insights into data governance models across Asia-Pacific nations.
  • Other relevant discussions at the intersection of constitutional and administrative law, international or transnational law, comparative law, and the evolving landscape of data governance.

Abstracts are accepted until January 15, 2024, with selected works being considered for publication. For detailed information and submission guidelines, visit: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScmqxMbkExx3YWaPU9szw_9Vbo1HLx-jcRy8nTfB_c-9RKGcg/viewform
