The experts of the Centre took part in the development of the textbook “Media, conflict and the protection of personal data”

The issue of legal regulation of personal data protection is one of priority areas of the Lviv Centre for International Law and Human Rights. Previous year the team of the Centre took part in the successful realisation of a number of projects in this sphere. This year the member of the Board Ivan Horodyskyy and the leading expert of the Centre Marta Levytska took part in the development of the training course and manual “Media, conflict and the protection of personal data”, devoted to the peculiarities of personal data protection in media activities while covering conflicts. Another co-author is the lawyer at the European Court of Human Rights, the Representative of the Commissioner for protection of personal data (2013-2015) Markiyan Bem.

The manual deals with legal regulation of personal data processing in media activities while covering conflicts, their dissemination in publications and the right to privacy and its correlation with the freedom of expression in publications containing personal data. Particular attention is paid to the facts of dissemination of personal data in the media coverage of conflicts in eastern Ukraine and Crimea in 2014-2016.

The experts of the Lviv Centre for International Law and Human Rights developed the training course and textbook within the framework of the joint project of the Rule of Law Centre of the Ukrainian Catholic University and the School of Journalism of the UCU with the support of the NGO “Media Forum” and the educational and analytical portal MediaLab.Online. The project is supported by the British Embassy in Ukraine.
