Report Round table The Home 2.0


19 June 2018

On June 19 2018, the Dutch PI.lab organized a roundtable to discuss two new concepts: Home 2.0 and digital home, proposed by the VICI team from TILT (Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society) for better privacy protection in the increasingly digitalized and hyper-connected home environment. Around thirty participants, including academics, law enforcement agents, ICT experts, lawyers and policy-makers, reviewed the weakening home protection in the age of ubiquitous data, and explored the feasibility and configuration of the two concept(ion)s. The majority shared the view of the necessity for re-conceptualizing home as a legal concept, despite some disagreement on how this is best done. This short paper is meant for providing a brief summary of the roundtable discussion with some reflections, and to offer some policy recommendations for improving home and home privacy protection.
