29 Jun 2019, Workshop on ‘Data-Driven Personalisation in Markets, Politics and Law', led by Professor Uta Kohl and Dr Jacob Eisler

Southampton Law School hosted a workshop on the topic of ‘Data-Driven Personalisation in Markets, Politics and Law', which explored the pervasive and growing phenomenon of ‘personalisation’ – from behavioural advertising in commerce and micro-targeting in politics, to personalised pricing and contracting and predictive policing and recruitment. This is a huge area which touches upon many legal disciplines as well as social science concerns and, of course, computer science and mathematics. Within law, it goes well beyond data protection law, raising questions for criminal law, consumer protection, competition and IP law, tort law, administrative law, human rights and anti-discrimination law, law and economics as well as legal and constitutional theory.
