Professor Bygrave's presentation on 'New privacy developments in Europe' will focus on the European Union's development of a new Regulation to replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive, including such controversial matters as a 'right to be forgotten'.

European discussions are now reaching a crucial stage, with the Irish Presidency of the EU arguing for a shift toward a more 'risk based' approach in preference to what is claimed to be the prescriptive approach of the current draft.

The international context of these controversial changes is heightened by both the commencement of EU/US free trade negotiations, and Mr Edward Snowden's revelations of the extent of US and UK surveillance activities.

Professor Bygrave will also touch on other European developments such as the privacy and data protection case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
