The book provides an analysis of the concept of the ‘data subject’ under the GDPR; reconceptualises the notion of data subjects’ vulnerability, promoting a ‘vulnerability-aware’ interpretation of the GDPR; investigates how personal conditions influence the definition and the protection of data subjects and proposes new definitions and data-subject categories that respond to new challenges in the age of AI.
The author is available in case of interest in writing a book review or organising a book presentation.
