Starting date: 1 September 2018

Completion date:  31 August 2021

Project description:

The PhD project examines cases at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), which raise issues of fact or law regarding/related to climate change causes and impacts. Through analysis of the relevant CJEU case law, the project seeks to shed light on the CJEU's approach and interpretation style in such climate change cases, and assess how the CJEU influences the development of EU climate change law and policy through its case law.

Projektbeskrivelse:

Projektet undersøger de retlige rammer for behandling af personoplysninger i intelligente energisystemer (smart grid og smart energy systems). Intelligente energisystemer etablerer interaktion mellem forbrugere og leverandører med det formål at tilpasse energisystemet til forbruget og omvendt. Udveksling af forsynings- og forbrugsdata fra samtlige producenter og forbrugere skal sikre realiseringen af det intelligente energinet som en del af løsningen på den grønne omstilling. Samtidig åbner nettene op for egen og kommerciel indsigt i individuelle forbrugsmønstre, som kan indeholde personoplysninger, der er beskyttet efter persondataforordningen. Projektet undersøger i lyset heraf, hvordan hensynet til at beskytte borgernes privatliv og personlige integritet konkret beskyttes overfor hensynet til en hensigtsmæssig udnyttelse af mulighederne for informations- og kommunikations teknologier i intelligente energisystemer.

Starting date: 1 September 2017

Completion date:  31 August 2020

Projektbeskrivelse:

In the light of the Danish Competition Act and TFEU art. 101, the project examines the legality of joint bidding (consortium bids). The project entails both legal and economic analysis to shed light on the consequences of the current state of law including the legal uncertainty of the assessment of whether companies are competitors. In addition, the project seeks to provide a legal political discussion on how joint bidding could/should be regulated to create social value.

Starting date: 1 December 2016

Completion date: 30 November 2019

Project description:

This project seeks to enhance the legal understanding of the multi-sided business model under EU Competition Law. Particularly, it investigates whether, and in which way, a greater implementation of the two-sided market theory into competition law analysis would allow to reduce the likelihood of type-I and type-II errors, thus increasing legal certainty when enforcing EU Competition Law in a digital multi-sided environment. 

Reconciling the Right to Privacy with Freedom of Expression

Starting date: 1 April 2016

Completion date:  31 March 2019

Projektbeskrivelse:

In C-131/12, Google Spain, an ordinary Spanish citizen requested that Google removed or concealed on the list of results from a search based on his name certain information about him lawfully published in a newspaper several years earlier. The European Court of Justice pronounced that the rights to privacy and data protection in Art. 7 and 8 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights as ’rule’ override not only the economic interest of the search engine in processing the data, but also the interest of the general public in having access to it, unless a ’preponderant’ public interest is demonstrated. It thereby indicated that these rights are superior to that of freedom of expression in Art. 11, not only violating the strong interdependency between the rights according to international human rights law, but also consistent case law from the European Court of Human Rights.

Against this background and with a view to explore and understand the interrelation between the rights, the project seeks to tease out the underlying rationales behind the rights to privacy, data protection and freedom of expression and explore how they are reflected in EU legislation and case law, and determine the criteria behind each of them. These analyses will then serve as a foundation for exploring how the rights may be reconciled, and which of the identified rationales and criteria may determine the outcome in cases of conflict between them.

The PhD project is co-funded by University of Copenhagen, Centre for Information and Innovation Law (CIIR) and Danish Institute for Human Rights.

Projektbeskrivelse:

Det primære formål med afhandlingen bliver at undersøge om retten til privatlivets fred sikres og respekteres, når staten overvåger borgerne på internettet til brug for efterforskning af blandt andet cybercrime, og hvem der varetager borgerens rettigheder i forbindelse hermed. Hovedfokus i afhandlingen vil være borgerens grundlæggende ret til privatliv, hvad dette indebærer i forhold til overvågning, hvordan borgerens ret sikres i forbindelse med vedtagelse af nye love og implementering af EU-direktiver og hvordan retten sikres i forhold til behovet for digital overvågning.
