The European Commission has proposed new rules for protecting personal data. In this context, the 3rd Annual FRA Symposium will focus on the fundamental rights dimension of the proposed data protection reform.
By bringing together key experts and stakeholders, the 2012 Symposium will highlight the importance of the right to have personal data protected, as enshrined in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. The event builds on the work of the FRA, including the FRA report on the role of National Data Protection Authorities and its opinions on the use of Passenger Name Record (PNR) data. Around 60 experts from national government agencies and specialised bodies, international and non-governmental organisations, and data protection institutions are expected to attend. Participation is upon invitation only.
