Annual European data protection conference: update on recent developments

FRA took part in the Academy of European Law's Annual European Data protection conference that took place in Trier on 18-29 November.

This year’s conference focused on the role of cloud computing services and social networks in applying EU data protection law and offered an update on the current legislative proposals at EU level and the most recent case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. The event was also a useful opportunity for FRA to discuss with European Commission and Council of Europe representatives the next steps regarding finalising and launching the FRA's upcoming report on the access to data protection remedies in the EU and the joint FRA, Council of Europe and European Court of Human Rights handbook on European data protection law. The publication is planned for end of January
