Background and Objectives of the Workshop

Explanatory Statement

Digitalization and ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) are fundamentally reshaping the social, political and legal world. This is both a chance as well as a challenge to the legal world.

Modern technology facilitates legal system transparency and accountability, improves access to judicial systems, and speed up proceedings; meanwhile, multi-national companies must answer how they store the data of their users, and what privacy and secrecy rules apply to them, without violating the data privacy rules of the countries they are operating in; in terms of data secrecy and human rights, facial recognition systems and biometric collections raise concerns about privacy and human rights issues that can not be solved on a national level. Based on the recent developments in social media, global e-commerce and legal tech/e-justice, the workshop asks the question to what extent these technologies can help create legal areas across borders while ensuring the protection of fundamental rights/human rights.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us the topic’s timeliness and the difficulty of protecting privacy and fundamental rights during an ongoing state of emergency. 

Our two previous symposiums discussed the necessity of and the required framework for an Asian legal sphere. New technologies have created a connected world that is leading to a common area in Asia (and the world) and the necessity of an Asian legal sphere. European governments lead e-government development globally and integration in Europe has lead to a steady increase of cross-border legal procedures. European laws and regulations like the GDPR are used as a global baseline.

This workshop is about the new challenges of these technologies that Asia and Europe are dealing with right now. The main focus of this workshop will be discussions about these issues and concrete measures we can take. Many of our guests are therefore practitioners (judges, lawyers, members of court, public servants) who can share their insights into the ongoing challenges and practical solutions that already exist.
