SUMMER ACADEMY FOR GLOBAL PRIVACY LAW 2020

Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law 2020


The Brussels Privacy Hub (BPH), building on the successful experience of the European Data Protection Law Summer School, is launching the Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law, a prestigious meeting point for scholars and practitioners from Europe and beyond. The Summer Academy will allow participants to update their knowledge on international and European privacy and data protection law, by reviewing the latest policy and legal developments, as well as upcoming trends and challenges, and by interacting with regulators and thought leaders from the EU and beyond.


Goals

During five days, the Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law will bring together internationally renowned lecturers, including academics, representatives of European Union (EU) institutions, data protection authorities (DPAs), private companies, lawyers and civil society. The Academy has a policy and legal focus, but will integrate interdisciplinary perspectives to equip participants with the insights to understand, and be able to shape, European and global privacy law. It will use its unique location in Brussels, the capital of the data protection world, to give students deep insight into the law, policies, and procedures of EU data protection law. This will include coverage of how the EU is coping with the data protection challenges of new technologies (such as AI).


The Summer Academy will  cover in particular the EU legal landscape and key issues under the GDPR; related instruments such as the Council of Europe Convention 108+ and the European Convention on Human Rights; and the main actors and institutions in the data protection world. In addition, it includes lecturers from outside the EU, and coverage of important global issues as well, In particular those relating to international data transfers. The sessions at the Summer Academy will be interactive, and will give students the opportunity to learn from the BPH’s renowned group of privacy faculty, including Prof. Paul De Hert, Prof. Christopher Kuner, and Prof. Gloria Gonzalez Fuster.
