The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM) are holding a joint hearing “Combating Gender based Violence: Cyber Violence” on 30 November 2020.

Rādīt sīkāku informāciju

The objective of the hearing is to obtain an important input from relevant experts for the joint LIBE-FEMM legislative initiative draft report, which will focus on combating cyber violence as an expression of gender based violence, with specific attention to violence against women.
The organisation of such a hearing is of particular relevance in light of the current crisis, which has led to the confinement of millions of individuals in the EU with, as a consequence, an increased use of the Internet, and an increased risk of cyber violence, especially against women and girls. The hearing is set to take place in the UN's 16 days of activism against gender-based violence (November 25 to December 10).
Invited speakers:

  • Catherine DE BOLLE, Executive Director of Europol;
  • Clara SOMMIER, Public policy manager, YouTube
  • Ingrid BRODNIG, Journalist, author

Darbseminārs - STOA

Rādīt sīkāku informāciju

The imminent introduction of 5G across the EU is expected to bring new opportunities for citizens and businesses, through faster browsing, streaming, downloading, as well as better connectivity - a new stage in the evolution of our increasingly interconnected world. 5G wireless communication offers numerous advantages, for instance to medical research, which will benefit from having such extremely high gigabit connectivity. 5G is the foundation technology for the Internet of Things (IoT), where machines will communicate with each other. However, 5G may also bring new threats to human and animal health and to the environment.

In order to discuss these issues, the STOA Panel is organising this virtual workshop. The workshop will be structured around three main questions, which the panellists have been asked to address:

Q1. Is the 2020 International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) risk assessment of the health and environmental effects of electromagnetic fields, sufficiently robust and reliable for protective policymaking?

Q2. Are the ICNIRP recommended exposure limits for electromagnetic fields, which are based mainly on short term tissue heating effects, sufficiently protective to avoid harm from lower level, longer term exposures that are below the ICNIRP limits.

Q3. Is there enough independent research into the health and environmental effects of 5G, which would help to reassure the public and help minimise future liabilities?

09-12-2020 15:00 - Digital human rights and the future of democracy: Lessons from the pandemic

Cits pasākums - STOA
STOA Annual Lecture

Online event

Rādīt sīkāku informāciju

This year, STOA's Annual Lecture will focus on the disruptive effects of the digital revolution upon democracy and the protection of civil liberties and human rights in the context of the current pandemic. It will examine the impacts of digital technology on democratic decision-making and the notion of democratic citizenship. The Annual Lecture 2020, chaired by STOA Chair Eva KAILI (S&D, Greece), will investigate the challenges associated with the growing datafication of our societies and the need to reclaim data sovereignty in the era of artificial intelligence.

Following the opening remarks of the STOA Chair, the European Commission Vice-President for the European Way of Life, Margaritis SCHINAS, will deliver an introductory speech on the subject of the event. The keynote lecture will be delivered by Shoshana ZUBOFF, Charles Edward Wilson Professor Emerita of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and award-winning author of 'The Age of Surveillance Capitalism'. Professor ZUBOFF is a world-class thinker whose research is focused on the contested digital transition, its relationship to the future of capitalism, and the consequences for individuals and society.

Her keynote speech will be followed by a panel discussion on various aspects of key new technologies, with the participation of Members of the European Parliament and two eminent experts: Fredrik HEINTZ, Associate professor of Computer Science at Linköping University, Sweden and President of the Swedish AI Society, and Karen YEUNG, Professor of Law, Ethics and Informatics, Birmingham Law School and School of Computer Science, University of Birmingham, UK. An online public debate will close the event.

'Our digital century was to have been democracy's Golden Age. Instead, we enter its third decade marked by extreme asymmetries of knowledge and the power that accrues to such knowledge, as surveillance capitalism seizes control of information and learning itself. Today the unaccountable power of the tech companies threatens to remake society as it unmakes democracy, exposing a void where democratic power should be and alerting us to our historical condition: We march naked into the digital century without the charters of rights, legal frameworks, regulatory paradigms, and institutions necessary to ensure a digital future that is compatible with democracy. If digital technologies are to advance the aspirations of a democratic people in our time, then we must invent the laws and institutions that will make it so.'
