On Wednesday, 28 June 2017 from 17h00 till 19h00 the Muntpunt in Brussels will host a book launch and an evening debate on Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Relations as a Challenge for Democracy. This book, co-edited by Dan Svantesson and Dariusz Kloza, is a fruit of collaboration of 30 authors from all over the world, who have provided their views on (the protection of) data privacy in relations between Europe and Americas as a challenge for democracy, the rule of law (Rechtsstaat) and fundamental rights.
“This book includes contributors of international stature who deal with Snowden and Safe Harbour, but also go beyond them to address some of the key topics affecting privacy at the international level. The topics are timely and the authors highly qualified, and the book will be of interest to anyone interested in privacy and data protection law and policy” – recommended Dr Christopher Kuner, Co-Director of the Brussels Privacy Hub.
