EDRi-gram, 19 April 2023

In this edition of the EDRi-gram, we are inviting you to share your feedback on a draft programme for an initial decolonising process for the digital rights field in Europe. Multiple voices are raised against the EU CSAR proposal amidst plans revealing the wish to systematise government access to data. We are also looking at why it's important to uphold patients’ rights in a new health data law. And what are the consequences of the recently adopted Law on Olympic Games in France, which formalises the introduction of algorithmic video-surveillance.
