Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law 2021 - International data flows: Moving challenges, new solutions?

  • April 7, 2021

[Summer Academy] The regulation of personal data transfers has been a prime concern for privacy and data protection law for decades, and is nowadays more important and challenging than ever. The follow-up to the ‘Schrems II’ judgement of the Court of Justice of the European Union (EU) and the situation of the United Kingdom (UK) are just two examples of ongoing developments that demand attention and require in-depth study.

The Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law 2021 will focus on exploring international data flows. It will offer participants advanced insights on the applicable rules on data transfers in the EU, as well as knowledge on the newest developments in global privacy law in other regions. The Summer Academy will take place, from Monday 21st June to Friday 25th June 2021. The full programme can be found here.
