Croatian Hub Held the 37th Webinar in its Webinar Series


On 14 May 2024, the Hub hosted a webinar examining 'Digital Remains and Postmortem Privacy'

The above was held as part of an ongoing webinar series aimed at fostering discussion on current ELI projects and recent developments in Croatian, comparative and EU law. The webinar brought together 30 participants from Croatia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia.

The event commenced with a welcome address from Dr Ivan Tot (ELI Croatian Hub Co-Chair; Assistant Professor at the University of Zagreb Faculty of Economics & Business).

This was followed by an insightful lecture on ‘Digital Remains and Postmortem Privacy’, delivered by Dr Edina Harbinja (Reader in Media/Privacy Law at the Aston University, Aston Law School).

In her lecture, Dr Harbinja explored the theoretical, technological, and doctrinal issues surrounding digital remains and presented the concept of postmortal privacy developed in her recent monograph Digital Death, Digital Assets and Post-mortem Privacy: Theory, Technology and the Law (Edinburgh University Press 2022). Dr Harbinja also presented the aims and key issues dealt within the current ELI project on Succession of Digital Assets, Data and other Digital Remains, in which she is actively involved as a Co-Reporter.

Following the lecture, an engaging Q&A session ensued, allowing participants to actively contribute to the discussion.
