OBVIA welcomes Mitacs interns

Within the terms of a collaboration agreement with the Université Côte d’Azur, OBVIA is pleased to welcome for the next few months a doctoral candidate in law from this institution. They will be supervised by professors from Université Laval who are also co-heads of research themes within the Observatory. We wish Léonie and Pierre a warm welcome to Québec City and an enriching stay.

Léonie Blaszyk-Niedergang
PhD candidate in law
Faculté de Droit et Science Politique, Université Côte d’Azur

Under the supervision of Colette Brin, co-head of he Arts, Media and Cultural Diversity researche theme, Léonie will carry out a comparative law study of the normative frameworks applicable to “fake news”, and in particular of French, American, British, German, Italian, Quebec and Canadian law, and on the different approaches to regulation mobilized in the fight against misinformation (ad hoc legislation, jurisprudence, regulation left to private actors, implementation of reporting platforms, etc.)

Pierre Legros
PhD candidate in law
Faculté de Droit et Science Politique, Université Côte d’Azur

Pierre will carry out his project under the supervision of Pierre-Luc Déziel, co-head of the Law, Cyberjustice and Cybersecurity research theme. In light of the growing development of so-called “intelligent” digital technologies in the health sector, the project aims to compare the European and North American protection regimes applicable to the processing of personal health information by private economic actors.
