About the Research Training Group (RTG)
The doctoral programme focuses on the privacy-related aspects of digitalisation and thus engages in a highly topical and politically relevant theme of outstanding social and academic importance. The aim of the doctoral programme is to assess the significance of privacy under the conditions of digitalisation and increasing informational heteronomy and to evaluate the existing privacy concepts in this context. This takes place in the three fields of enquiry ‘digitality’, ‘surveillance and control’ and ‘self-determination and responsibility’.
