Law-by-design and automated decision making: a reinterpretation of Art. 22 GDPR

Christian Djeffal will discuss law-by-design and automated decision making at Oxford University on 2 June 2021. The HeLex – Centre for Health, Law and Emerging Technologies of the Faculty of Law holds this event as a part of their Law and Technologies Seminar Series.

The rule on automated decision making in the General Data Protection Regulation has been the subject of many controversies. Christian Djeffal argues that Art. 22 GDPR is to be reinterpreted as a Law-by-design norm. Instead of discussing questions like the existence of a right to privacy, this provision should be applied in a context sensitive manner in order to fulfill its central function to safeguard rights freedoms and legitimate interests of data subjects. He discusses the implication of this view for current legislative proposals like the EU Artificial Intelligence Act.
