The panel is premised by a recurring theme in empirical privacy research: as privacy localism drive regulation and policy change, we are left with a landscape that is fragmented, across states and sectors; confusing, between places and stakeholders; and often insufficient, as laws address narrow sets of privacy harms or specific actors. This raises the question: How can organizations and individuals innovate to address privacy policy gaps and fragmentation? This panel aims to describe and discuss creative and experimental approaches to institutionalize privacy practices in different contexts and organizations, moving beyond relying on policy alone to promote social good. We address this from a variety of perspectives including licensing, contracting, privacy by design including via architecture, records laws, AI ethics, human rights, obfuscation, and activism.
