Privacy and Democracy Project

The Privacy and Democracy Project examines the degree to which personal data of individuals is collected, processed, used and transferred in ways that undermine democracy. Elements of the project focus on cybersecurity attacks that acquire personal data, the limited ability individuals have to control who has their data, how data brokers acquire data, and the use of data by nation states to profile individuals and to use those profiles to destabilize democratic participation and institutions.
