Amplifying Data Rights

Data rights have been present in Europe for more than fifty years, but are rarely used by EU residents and poorly complied with by organisations. This project aims to contribute to the development of a healthy Danish digital democracy by: 

  1. Empowering Danish residents to more actively exercise their Right to Access through a user-friendly interface and by mediating between the individual and the data controller: dataret.au.dk
  2. Gathering first-of-its-kind longitudinal data on compliance with data rights in Denmark; 
  3. Increasing the pressure on data controllers to align their organizational practice in a way that makes complying with data rights easier.
