Book Event: The Fight for Privacy with Danielle Citron
Please join the CSIS Strategic Technologies Program for an online book event featuring Danielle Citron, Jefferson Scholars Foundation Schenck Distinguished Professor in Law and Caddell and Chapman Professor of Law at the University of Virginia and author of The Fight for Privacy: Protecting Dignity, Identity, and Love in the Digital Age.
In The Fight for Privacy, Citron details how the privacy afforded to intimate lives is under threat. Deep fakes, leaked emails and phone records, hacked computers, and character assassination in the form of journalistic scoop can be readily deployed and can cause lasting damage to people’s families, private lives, reputations, and careers. The Supreme Court’s recent reversal of women and girls’ right to privacy in their reproductive decisions means that online searches, app use, and location data will not only be used in decisions about employment and life insurance but also in criminal investigations. With vivid examples drawn from interviews with victims, activists, and lawmakers from around the world, Citron argues for an urgent reassessment of privacy as a fundamental human and civil right and provides a road map for understanding and defending privacy in the twenty-first century.
In this event, Citron will be joined by Caitlin Chin to discuss how the U.S. legal system has failed to prevent harmful data collection and sharing, resulting in tangible digital privacy abuses that are visible worldwide.
