This inaugural Bijou Lecture features Susie Alegre, a leading human rights barrister at the internationally renowned Doughty Street Chambers, Founder and Director of the Island Rights Initiative.

Susie is a legal pioneer in digital human rights, in particular the impact of artificial intelligence on the human rights of freedom of thought and opinion. She is also Senior Research Fellow at the University of Roehampton.

The Bijou Lecture in a nutshell:
In this short lecture, Susie covers how human rights and data protection are fundamentally linked, and how small island jurisdictions like Guernsey have an important role to play in the evolving digital landscape.

This lecture was released to mark the first anniversary of the ODPA’s social initiative ‘Project Bijou’ which aims to support and nurture positive cultural change around how people and organisations treat people’s data.
