The GDPR: a European Success Story
21 June 2018
In this first podcast of a new series on EU policy beyond Brexit, Dr Nathan Lea, Senior Research Associate at the UCL Institute of Health Informatics, discusses the significance of the new European regulation protecting personal data.
He shares a very positive view of the GDPR, which manages to strike a subtle balance between the need to harmonise different national frameworks, the necessity to tackle misuses of personal data and a certain degree of flexibility to enable innovation. A true European success story that emulates similar legislations to be passed throughout the world.
