On 11 September 2020, Joris van Hoboken and Ronan Fahy presented a paper at a symposium on Transnational Legal Ordering of Privacy and Speech, hosted by the University of California, Irvine School of Law. The paper is entitled “Regulating Disinformation in Europe: Implications for Speech and Privacy,” and discusses the ongoing dynamics in the regulation of disinformation in Europe, focusing on the intersection between the right to freedom of expression and the right to privacy. The discussion began with comments from two distinguished discussants – Anupam Chander (Georgetown Law School); and Daphne Keller, (Stanford Law School) – and the discussion was then opened to the floor. The symposium was organised by David Kaye and Greg Shaffer of UC Irvine School of Law, and the symposium assessed the role of private companies and governments at the intersection of privacy and freedom of expression and opinion.
