EU Data Protection Law (Elective)

The aim of the course is to provide students with all the necessary knowledge of EU law on the protection of personal data and their practical application. It will provide them with comprehensive knowledge of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Directive 2016/680, Directive 2002/858 (e-Privacy), as it has been amended, and other EU legal rules governing data protection.

The course presents basic concepts of data protection, based on a theoretical analysis of privacy in the 21st century, especially in view of the exceptional circumstances that arose in the context of the recent Covid-19 pandemic. It will also address specific issues such as the protection of digital rights, the role of the Data Protection Officer (DPO), the implementation of the principle of accountability, the one-stop-shop, the coherence mechanism, the powers of data protection authorities to implement the provisions, the role of the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), international data transfers, etc.
