"The University of Geneva’s Summer Research Colloquium was an important step in the academic cycle of our paper, “Saving Face: The Screen of Chinese Privacy Law Unfolds.” We received valuable feedback from commentators on our initial draft and will be able to present a polished paper to the Asian Privacy Scholars’ Network in Auckland, New Zealand in December 2016. In addition, the summer in Geneva is filled with opportunities to swim in the lake, visit unique museums, and stroll the cobblestones of the old town with colleagues old and new."
