CPH – CECS Lunch seminar with Professor Dr. Sybe A. de Vries – by University of Copenhagen

March 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CET


CECS Lunch seminar with Professor Dr. Sybe A. de Vries.

According to the European Commission a Digital Single Market (DSM) ‘is one in which the free movement of persons, services and capital is ensured and where the individuals and businesses can seamlessly access and engage in online activities under conditions of fair competition, and a high level of consumer and personal data protection, irrespective of their nationality or place of residence’. Or, in other words, The DSM is about allowing the freedoms of Europe’s Single Market to enter the digital age.

Against this background, the question that will be addressed in my presentation is whether and, if so, how digitalization impacts the four freedoms and their underlying principles, and vice versa.
