Data Protection Law

2 ECTs / 12h / English

The advances in technology are making not only the collection of personal data much easier, but also developing new forms to expose and jeopardize the privacy of individuals. Public policies to address data protection concerns have been developed at a national level, but clearly the globalization of technology and communication is pressing for transnational forms of data protection. As a result, this seminar aims to provide students with the capaciti4es to understand how law is asked to deal with the challenges to data protection, and specifically what has been the model adopted at the European Union level.
