    "description": "<p>When reflecting upon the role of law as an instrument influencing&nbsp;urban planning and shaping urban environments, the most&nbsp;immediate link is to environmental and urban legislation.&nbsp;<br>\nNevertheless, data protection law is increasingly expected to affect&nbsp;the future development of urban realities in the European Union&nbsp;(EU). Being actual &ldquo;data cities&rdquo;, current smart cities have been&nbsp;significantly affected by the entry into force of the General Data&nbsp;Protection Regulation (GDPR). In particular, the Data Protection&nbsp;Impact Assessment (DPIA) is increasingly portraited as a solution to&nbsp;address the countless fundamental rights challenges arising from the&nbsp;personal data processing operations occurring in the context of smart&nbsp;<br>\ncities, inter alia due to its participatory element. However, is DPIA a&nbsp;suitable approach to making smart cities more inclusive, and&nbsp;specifically to empower women of diverse races, backgrounds, sexual&nbsp;orientations and abilities? Enquiry into the ways in which smart&nbsp;cities, where urban and data protection challenges merge, might&nbsp;exacerbate dynamics of oppression against women, and how&nbsp;European data protection law could address these challenges, is still&nbsp;<br>\nlacking. The objective of this article is to begin such a discussion.</p>",
