Centre for Communication Governance at NLU delhi


This policy paper is the result of a workshop organised jointly by the Tilburg Institute of Law, Technology and Society, Netherlands, the Centre for Communication Governance at the National Law University Delhi, India and the Centre for Internet & Society, India. It was titled “Trends in Data Governance in India and the EU” and took place on the 12th of January, 2023. The workshop brought together a number of academics, researchers, and industry representatives in Delhi to discuss a range of issues at the core of data governance theory and practice. At the time of the workshop, various iterations of the final law, DPDP Act 2023 were available for consultation and the participants drew from the concepts already envisaged. The policy paper reports on those critiques along with an analysis of the DPDP Act 2023 that has finally taken shape.

This policy paper collates key takeaways from the workshop by grounding them across three key themes: how we conceptualise data; how institutional mechanisms as well as community-centric mechanisms can work to empower individuals, and what notions of justice these embody; and finally a case study of enforcement of data governance in India to illustrate and evaluate the claims in the first two sections.
