Abstract: This is the introduction to the book. The aim is to document some of the current reflections on the RtbF and the interplay of the value of memory and citizen rights about memory. The authors of this book, legal theorists and social scientists, offer a comprehensive analysis of the problem of the persistence of memory, the definition of identities (legal and social), and the problems arising for data management. Hence, throughout this book, the authors have engaged in a journey in order to understand from several perspectives what forgetting might mean in this hybridised (online and offline) world, 6 looking constructively at the proposal made by European regulators, in particular Articles 17 and 18 of the ‘Proposal’.
