    This joint program offers a variety of perspectives on privacy law, and is especially timely in light of developments over the last few years in the United States and in the European Union with regard to surveillance, data privacy, and civil liberties, as well as the worldwide discussions on individual control over personal data and information. This panel will address topics as diverse as the still-developing area of the right to be forgotten in the European Union as it compares with privacy and expressive rights in the United States; the framework of privacy rights in South Africa, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom; a proposed data privacy structure for the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN); and how the privacy rights framework of the European Union is affected by national security considerations.
