The Organisation for Cooperation and Economic Development, the Federal Trade Commission, the European Consumer Organisation, and the European Commission have recently published reports on the need for regulators to be given effective tools to crack down on illegal uses of deceptive design online.

Join this workshop of experts to explore how lawmakers and regulators on both sides of the Atlantic are tackling the issue of deceptive design and explore how lessons learned on both shores can help provide global regulatory solutions.

The workshop will be moderated by Finn Lützow-Holm Myrstad from the Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD). It will be based on the academic research of Dr. Ann Kristin Glenster from the Minderoo Centre of Technology and Democracy of the University of Cambridge. John Davisson from the Electronic Privacy Information Center will share some of EPIC’s experiences advocating for restrictions on deceptive design in the U.S.
