ODHK meets are back. At our first event of 2015 we look at the “Right to be Forgotten” legislation and other legislation and policies as they relate to Hong Kong. If you’re into politics, or you’re a policy wonk, or an engaged citizen interested in improving access to information, come out to Meet.25.
See this event on Facebook.

The “Right to Be Forgotten” policy is under review by various governments around the world, and has been adopted broadly by the European Union, Argentina, and the United States. Recently Hong Kong’s Privacy Commissioner has recommended adopting the legislation for Hong Kong, and there’s been push back. Frankie Chu of InMedia will discuss how this legislation has implications for how information is managed online, as well as for open data and transparency.

We will also have a short discussion about other legislation that would help bolster open data in Hong Kong: Archive Law, Access to Information, and an Open Data Policy.
