The adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was the major piece in the EU data governance framework. In order to complete this framework EU policymakers have been busy drafting amendments to existing laws and proposing new legal measures to respond to the realities of data economy. In this context, the European Commission has most notably put forward the following regulatory proposals:
Anticipating the adoption of these documents and their significant impact on compliance matters for businesses, we plan on reflecting on the regulatory architecture of data governance in the EU, placing a particular emphasis on questions of coherence, comprehensiveness and effectiveness.
The 2022 Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law will focus on the EU data governance reform, as illustrated in the above listed five regulatory instruments, each found at various stages of a law-making process. Each regulatory text will first be placed within its proper background and ecosystem, before analysing its regulatory approach and (still draft) provisions. Particular attention will be paid to its relationship with specific aspects of the EU data protection law, particularly with the GDPR.
The 2022 Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law will take place in a hybrid format, both on-line and on-site, from Monday June 27 to Friday July 1, 2022. In the morning, participants will attend lectures by selected speakers including internationally recognised academics, policy makers, data protection authorities, and civil society representatives. In the afternoon, they will engage in interactive sessions and teamwork allowing them to further connect regardless of their location.
Summer Academy will host high-level speakers both from EU institutions, academia and industry representatives.
Subjects covered will include:
The Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law builds on years of successful summer education events organised by the Brussels Privacy Hub (BPH), from the capital of Europe.
