Join us at free ‘Right to be Forgotten’ seminar
Jochen Spangenberg

On 30 March 2015, REVEAL co-organises a seminar about the ‘Right to be Forgotten’ at the European University Institute in Florence.



The seminar will deal with issues surrounding the ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) which states that individuals have a right to request the removal of certain web search results related to their name and identity.

Experts will discuss relevant developments since the Court’s ruling – such as Art. 29 WP guidelines adopted in November 2014, and the report by the Advisory Council to Google released in February 2015, plus related arguments and viewpoints.

The main objective is to critically assess the impact of the ruling on future developments and/or other actors such as online social networks, following three angles:

  • the right to information;
  • extraterritoriality;
  • intermediary liability.

Experts present will include Jef Ausloos, Brendan Van Alsenoy, Aleksandra Kuczerawy, Marko Ilešič, Prof David Erdos, Prof Alessandro Mantelero, Prof Oreste Pollicino and Prof Dan Svantesson.

The sessions will be chaired by Prof Peggy Valcke and Prof Giovanni Sartor.

Participants are invited to contribute actively to the discussion.
