Professor Paul De Hert's work addresses problems in the area of privacy & technology, human rights and criminal law. Currently he is expanding his scope of interest including research on issues with regard to the human rights status of the elderly and the principle of neutrality in a democratic state. To satisfy his multiple curiosities de Hert teams up regularly with other authors. A human rights approach combined with a concern for theory is the common denominator of all his work. He is Co-Director of the Research group Law Science Technology & Society (LSTS), Director of the Research group on human rights (HUMR), and Director of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Law (Metajuridics).

This Workshop is part of the CMCL and IPRIA Interdisciplinary Workshop Series.
