Information Law and Policy Lab

The Lab is a student-run, IViR-supported initiative to develop and promote research-based policy solutions that protect fundamental rights in the field of European information law. The Lab will be actively working with partners and stakeholders in this field. (See also: Donation to Establish Information Law and Policy Lab).

  • The revision of the (e-Commerce Directive’s) regulatory framework on notice and action-policies of internet intermediary platforms.
