The past 25 years we have witnessed a lot of social, technical and legal changes and challenges in the landscape of privacy and data protection. The Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019. We look back on many years of privacy and data protection research, laid down in many research reports, journal articles, books and dissertations. In this panel we will guide the audience through 25 years of academic research by (former) TILT researchers. We want to reflect upon 25 years of Privacy and Data Protection development and want to see how the landscape has changed, if fundaments still hold strong and if and how lessons from the past can help develop the privacy and data protection landscape for the next 25 years.
