Coronavirus is putting Europe’s privacy protectors front and center – and they’re coming up short
1 oct. 2020 - Many European countries have introduced apps to keep tabs on citizens’ health during Covid-19 through tracking. But this sudden need to collect information – brought about by the pandemic – means that local data protection regulators aren’t prepared for the influx of data. To ensure our information is used accurately and for good reason, data protections need to be centralized and well-funded.

Workplace Surveillance in Times of Corona
10 sep. 2020 - With numbers of COVID-19 infections soaring again in the United States and around the world, we have to learn how to manage its long-term ramifications for our economies. As people adjust to minimizing the risk of infections in everyday settings, one critical context is work. Even though millions have shifted to working from home during the past months, remote work is not possible for every industry. While the pandemic has had a critical disruptive effect on work and employment virtually everywhere in the world, it has not affected everyone in the same ways. The International Labor Organization notes that the current crisis significantly affects women, workers in precarious situations who lack access to health care or limited social security benefits, and informal workers, who work jobs that are not taxed or registered by the government. In Latin America, 60% of workers are considered informal, with 58% of informal workers living in economic vulnerability on 13 U.S. dollars or less per day or in poverty on less than 5.5 U.S. dollars per day. Many have no choice but to work outside the home. This can involve putting their health and livelihoods on the line, especially in countries with insufficient public health care or unemployment programs.
