About

This website

In theory, this is both a personal archive and a blog which will focus mostly on Law, Technology and Digital Rights. In practice, anything goes.

These are the rules:

The blog will have articles in English or in Portuguese, depending on the subject and intended target audience. | I don't expect to write often. | Feel free to drop a comment or an email to react to any text or for any other reason. | As an archive, I will use this blog to register events in which I participate, articles I write, and other stuff that is important to me. It is still very incomplete but I will be retroactively adding content I have spread around. 

Me

Eduardo Santos, hi! 👋
I am a lawyer (55590L) from Portugal, based in Lisbon. I graduated from the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon, some years ago. More recently, I completed a post-graduation on Law & Tech at Porto's Faculty of Law of Católica University. Nowadays, you are likely to find me around Nova School of Law, in Lisbon, pursuing a master's degree on Law, with a specialization in Business Law & Tech. Yes, I'm into Law & Tech.
I'm a co-founder and the current president of D3 - Defesa dos Direitos Digitais, the Portuguese digital rights association, which is part of the European Digital Rights (EDRi) network. At D3 I do a bit of everything; mostly in tech policy, advocacy, campaign and lobbying related to digital rights issues such as privacy, net neutrality, data retention, public surveillance, copyright, or platform regulation. And lots of not-so-glamorous but still important administrative work.
I contribute to research projects within the areas of Law & Tech.
I have been an active civil society representative on international Internet governance fora (IGF and EuroDIG) since ~2017.
