Towards a new EU legal framework for data protection and privacy

The Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) Committee of the European Parliament has published the study “Towards a New EU Legal Framework for Data Protection and Privacy: Challenges, Principles and the Role of the European Parliament”, which addresses the new challenges stemming from data processing policies and systems falling in the scope of police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters in the EU Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, and identifies a set of common basic principles and standards for the genuine assurance of data protection in all the phases of EU policymaking and for the effective implementation of this fundamental right. The study has been co-authored by Didier Bigo (Centre d’Etudes sur les Conflits, C&C), Sergio Carrera (Centre for European Policy Studies, CEPS), Elspeth Guild (CEPS and Radboud University of Nijmegen), Julien Jeandesboz (C&C) and LSTS members Paul de Hert, Gloria González Fuster and Vagelis Papakonstantinou.
