The Meaning and Purpose of Data Protection

What do we want to protect with the right to informational self-determination? In an interview with Corona Constitutional, the podcast of the Verfassungsblog (constitutional blog), Ralf Poscher talks about surveillance in the digital space, the right to data protection and privacy, and the potential dangers of mass surveillance. One of the background issues is the federal government's planned introduction of the federal trojan for secret services. Ralf Poscher is director at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Crime, Security and Law and head of the Department of Public Law. The interview was conducted by Erik Tuchtfeld, research assistant at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law and freelance editor at the Verfassungsblog.
