The First Diploma Course on “The Human Right to Privacy and the Protection of Personal Data” closed on August 13, 2021. The Course was directed by Dr. Eduardo Bertoni, the Representative of the IIHR Regional Office for South America.

Thirty participants attended seven weeks of virtual classes presented by experts on the four modules that comprised the Course’s program. For example, the participants studied the protection of personal data in international law and comparative law; the concept of public and private; new technologies and the protection of personal data, and the security of the bases of personal data and their treatment. The Course ended with a discussion on the risks that the pandemic presented to the human right to privacy.

"We believe that the initial objectives that we set for the Course have been completely met, which encourages us to repeat it next year, thus becoming one more course that the Institute has sponsored,” stated Dr. Bertoni.
