PhD Thesis

Caio Oliveira's research is provisionally titled: "Beyond transparency: (re)designing online comprehension towards a user centred approach to improve data protection and trust".

The research proposes to investigate whether the current standard for transparency online is adequate to provide meaningful information about data processing activities to data subjects, data protection authorities and civil society, and evaluate which approach can be adopted by data controllers to assure comprehension and improve data protection and trust. With that, the doctoral research aims to (i) understand and frame the meaning and role of 'meaningful transparency' online; (ii) investigate whether the current standard of transparency adopt by several data controllers is enough to provide meaningful information about data processing activities; (iii) understand the gap between transparency and comprehension of data processing activities and its effects; (iv) propose new ways of understanding transparency online and its limits and evaluate if it is possible to translate transparency into comprehension.
