While EU countries are currently focused on complying with the General Data Protection Regulation, on the other side of the globe, in China, a completely different project is being tested: The Social Credit System. Whereas the EU is fighting for privacy and personal data protection, China has created a system which collects every citizen’s personal data, and then uses them to rank citizens in a way that affects almost every aspect of their lives.
How does this system work? Should the EU and other developed states adopt China’s position? Moreover, does such a system create a better society for everyone?
These questions will be answered in the following debate. We invite you to read it and decide for yourselves which side is the most persuasive and convincing. We hope that you will find it just as interesting as we did!
