PHD student ‘Privacy in the 21st century: Finding a new paradigm to protect citizens in the age of ubiquitous data.’ The research takes place within the VICI project of Bert-Jaap Koops.


The VICI project is aimed at reinventing physical-space privacy in light of developments in mobile devices, cloud computing, and surveillance, which will be done in a large part by comparative legal analyses of eight legal systems.


Within the comparative legal analyses, Ivan will study the legal systems of Germany, Poland and Czech Republic.
