In our 7th volume of the debate magazine MIND, international privacy experts demand a fundamental debate on the role of internet governance and privacy in the age of big data. Peter Schaar, former Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, his Norwegian colleague Georg Apenes and Jan Malinowski, Head of Information Society at the Council of Europe, as well as other authors, provide their views in the volume, edited by Wolfgang Kleinwächter.
Experts from the public and private sectors, civil society and academia provide their replies to the proposition essay by Schaar. For example, Petra Sitte (German Bundestag, The Left) ponders an internet regulated on a European level. George Salama of the SAMENA Council (Dubai) believes in the powers of regulation that can also foster innovation and investments in big data. Rafik Dammak, member of the steering committee of the Internet Rights and Principles Coalition believes foremost in the economic use of big data, but questions its value for the end user. Lastly, Richard Hill calls upon governments to stop mass surveillance.
