Abstract

Dutch Abstract: De ontwikkeling waarin de overheid digitaliseert en data-gedreven bestuurt, vraagt om algemene regels voor dataverwerking in het publieke domein. De Awb doet dat (nog) niet. Deze bijdrage laat zien dat het bestuursrecht en gegevensbeschermingsrecht nog niet goed op elkaar aansluiten en vraagt om meer visie en sturing.

English Abstract: The development of new technologies, e.g., big data, and the ability to transform data into knowledge about citizens are valuable assets for governments in the data-economy. However, public bodies often face legal uncertainty regarding data collection and exchange, since this has not been systematically regulated by law. This creates a hurdle for public bodies to fulfill the potential that data offers. This article explores the existing regulatory for data collection and exchange. It explains why problems relating to data-driven decision-making procedures cannot be answered by traditional principles and rules of administrative law.
