 Young Scholar Award 2018

Carl Vander Maelen, member of the Law & Technology research group of the Faculty of Law & Criminology, won a Young Scholar Award for his paper at the 2018 Amsterdam Privacy Conference.

His paper is titled ‘Online age verification mechanisms in the personal data protection framework: A battle for the ages?’. It discusses what online age verification is and how it is currently applied, analyses what the implications of the General Data Protection Rregulation are on these mechanisms, and evaluates whether clashes between age verification mechanisms and data protection principles and rights can be reconciled so that age verification can be deployed effectively in order to restrict access to age-restricted goods and services. 

 Carl received the award out of the hands of Prof. Chris Hoofnagle, Professor of Law at Berkeley Law and Faculty Director of the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology.
