  • The data-driven power of Google and co. A risk to competition? Bertelsmann Policy Brief #2018/04

    Stühmeier, Torben (2018)
    Is data really the new oil? Some say that access to this basic commodity is decisive for the success and failure of entire business models in the digital markets. Would an obligation to share data with competitors be an adequate means of ensuring fair competition in these markets?

  • Outsourcing of Business Registration Activities

    International Finance Corporation; Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency; World Bank (Washington, DC, 2017-08-16)
    In the private sector, outsourcing has
 become a recognized feature of the business scene. While
 there are various reasons for contracting out functions to
 external organizations, in general the justification relates
 to the potential cost-benefit from adopting this approach.
 This study set out to ascertain whether the same
 considerations applied to administrative procedures
 associated with starting a business. Did business registries
 outsource any or all of their functions? If so, did the same
 considerations apply as for the private sector? Were there
 lessons to be learned from their experience? Responses to
 these and other questions were received from 53 registries.
 This paper is not about global commerce, at least, not in
 the usual sense. It is about some of the more mundane
 administrative procedures that underpin the activities of
 the private sector, the basics that help it to function.
 Business registration is seen as a key factor in determining
 the investment climate of a country.
  • Canvas White Paper 2 Cybersecurity and Law

    Jasmontaite, Lina; Gonzzlez Fuster, Gloria; Gutwirth, Serge; Wenger, Florent; Jaquet-Chiffelle, David-Olivier; Schlehahn, Eva (European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 700540., 2017-10-31)
    This White Paper explores the legal dimensions of the European Union (EU)’s value-driven cybersecurity by investigating the notions of ‘value-driven’ and ‘cybersecurity’ from the perspective of EU law. It starts with a general overview of legal issues in current value-driven cybersecurity debates (Chapter 2), showing how values embedded within the framework of EU governing treaties have evolved during the integration process, and the important role they play in the cybersecurity regulation at EU level. Chapter 3 of the White Paper is devoted to the main critical challenges in this area: 1) the varied and sometimes unclear uses of the term ‘cybersecurity’, 2) the roles of stakeholders and the cooperation between them, and the 3) securitization of EU values and interests through cybersecurity rules. Chapter 4 points out and describes specific controversies concerning cybersecurity regulation in the EU. Ten disputed issues are given particular attention: 1) the functioning of human rights as drivers for EU regulation, 2) the regulation of risks to society through individual risk identification and proactive action, 3) the attribution of roles to different stakeholders, 4) how individuals are being awarded with more rights, 5) controllership of data, 6) copyright protection, 7) regulation of online content, 8) the use of encryption, 9) permissibility of massive and generalised surveillance of individuals and 10) counterterrorism measures. Chapter 5 summarises the main findings of the literature review. The White Paper recognises that legislative and policy measures within the cybersecurity domain challenge EU fundamental rights and principles, stemming from EU values. The White Paper concludes that with the constantly growing number of EU measures governing the cybersecurity domain, the embedment of EU values enshrined in the EU Charter within these measures take place both on an ex ante and an ex post basis.
