Job University of Groningen – PhD position Security and Safety in the Digital Society

This research project (ESR01) will research: Security and Safety in the Digital Society: Eco-systems enhancing privacy options.

Objectives: The research seeks to propose a comprehensive framework for the protection of the human right to privacy and personal data in the digital society and in particular the digital ecosystems. The framework that will be developed in this research project will derive its elements from human rights law and jurisprudence, security science, and information and technology (IT) governance.

Expected outcomes: The overall result is a dissertation identifying a comprehensive framework for the protection of the human right to privacy and personal data in a complex digital ecosystem. The framework should ensure that the utility that digital ecosystems deliver to citizens does not compromise their human rights and freedoms including the right to privacy and personal data. Thus, the framework will resemble the ideal point at which the benefits of a digital ecosystem and the rights and freedoms of its users co-exist. ESR01 will publish regularly in specialised peer-reviewed journals, participate and present in one workshop and prepare two research reports and a final dissertation.

Main supervisor: Prof dr Jeanne Pia Mifsud Bonnici, University of Groningen.

Co-supervisor: Prof dr Marian Sebe, “Mihai Viteazul” National Intelligence Academy (MVNIA), Romania.

Planned secondments: at “Mihai Viteazul” National Intelligence Academy (MVNIA), Romania; Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway and Synergetics NV group (SYN), Belgium.
