21H.181 Libertarianism in History (MIT) 21H.181 Libertarianism in History (MIT)

Description

This course explores the history of the ideal of personal freedom with an eye towards contemporary debates over the pros and cons of the regulatory state. The first part of the course surveys the sociological and theological sources of the concepts of freedom and civil society, and introduces liberty's leading relatives or competitors: property, equality, community, and republicanism. The second part consists of a series of case studies in the rise of modern liberty and libertarianism: the abolition of slavery, the struggle for religious freedom, and the twentieth-century American civil liberties movement. In the last part of the course, we take up debates over the role of libertarianism vs. the regulatory state in a variety of contexts: counter-terrorism, health care, the financial This course explores the history of the ideal of personal freedom with an eye towards contemporary debates over the pros and cons of the regulatory state.

Data Protection and Social Networks

Description

Dr. Ian Brown (Senior Research Fellow, Oxford Internet Institute) presents an analysis of the interface between Data Protection regulation and social networking. This seminar was held during Trinity Term 2012 as part of the OxPILS series 'Mending the Tangled Web? Informational Privacy 3.0'. The series was generously made possible with funding from a Joint Programme between the European Union and the Council of Europe.

Data Protection and Freedom of Expression in the Age of Web 2.0 - What should be the future shape of transnational governance regimes in this area? 2

Description

This contribution by Michael Donohue, Senior Policy Analyst at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), presents a personal perspective on this issue grounded in the OECD's canon. Michael Donoghue argues that the OECD framework has throughout its history emphasised the importance of ensuring the free flow of information. Recent socio-technological developments raise a number of new issues here notably the role of the individuals in putting privacy at risk through the data they create and disseminate. These issues have been under consideration as part of the review of the OCED privacy framework which is now underway. This talk was part of the OxPILS Conference 'The 'Right to be Forgotten' and Beyond' held on 12 June 2012. This Conference was the culminatio Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
