Policing, Mass Protest and Data Protection: recent developments and cases to watch
Tuesday 23rd June | 3pm
The seminar will consider the data protection issues arising from the policing of mass protests, covering both recent policy developments and cases to watch. The issues that will be covered, include information-sharing between police forces and with third parties, the retention of protestors’ data on police databases, automatic facial recognition, and the circumstances in which protestors may be considered citizen journalists. The speakers will discuss the types of data protection claims which may arise out of the recent Black Lives Matter protests.
