Legal and ethical data use

The use of personal data is increasingly regulated both legally and ethically. The goal of this working package is to analyse the regulative landscape and implementation laws and guidelines in practice. This requires both legal scholarship and social scientific research. The work will focus on central morally and legally loaded concepts, like privacy, transparency, fairness, discrimination, ownership, and understandability, and explore how these notions are understood in different legal contexts, in social philosophy, technology, everyday discourse, and in specific scientific debates. The working package will examine also the transparency of public health data usage in the case of social and health data and the use of AI.
