Peking University: The Limitations of Privacy Rights

On Thursday, September 8, 2022 I will be speaking with Peking University Law School about my paper, The Limitations of Privacy Rights, 98 Notre Dame Law Review __ (forthcoming 2023). Here’s a very brief synopsis of the paper:

Privacy laws often rely too heavily on individual rights, which are at most capable of being a supporting actor, a small component of a much larger architecture. This article discusses the common privacy rights, why each falls short, and the types of broader structural measures that can protect privacy in a more systematic, rigorous, and less haphazard way.
