Is There Life after the End of Privacy? Reflections on the Coverage of Tyler Clementi’s Suicide, Richard Miller, Professor, Rutgers University
- 12:05PM to 1:30PM
- SLB Room 122
Richard Miller's book, On the End of Privacy: Dissolving Boundaries in a Screen-Centric World (UPitt, March 2019), focuses on the events leading up to the suicide of Tyler Clementi and the trial that followed, where Clementi’s roommate was charged with a series of hate crimes for having used his webcam to spy on Clementi kissing another man. With access to the text messages, tweets, and chatroom posts of those directly involved in this tragedy, Miller asks: why did no one intervene to stop the spying?
Bert W. Wasserman Workshop in Law and Finance: "Supranational Supervision" with Prof. Dr. Rainer Haselmann

ABSTRACT: It is now common to have separate regulators for larger, more complex and cross-border active financial firms as opposed to smaller financial firms. Exploiting the establishment of a new supranational regulator responsible for banks larger than EUR 30 billion in assets in Europe (the Single Supervisory Mechanism SSM), we investigate how separation of regulation impacts regulatory outcomes as well as risk shifting activities among banks under the different regulators.
