Consent and consumer manipulation: Principles and rules for a fairer platform economy

This project aims to explore the legitimacy of business practices vis-à-vis the role and qualitative standard of consumer consent. More specifically, my aim is to (1) gain a more detailed understanding of what commercial purposes should require the consent of the individual due to their privacy-invasive nature; and more significantly, (2) investigate the kinds of purposes that cannot be or rather should not be legitimised even with individual consent through a comparative approach.
