Handbook on European data protection law


The rapid development of information technology has exacerbated the need for robust personal data protection, the right to which is safeguarded by both European Union (EU) and Council of Europe (CoE) instruments.

Safeguarding this important right entails new and significant challenges as technological advances expand the frontiers of areas such as surveillance, communication interception and data storage.

This handbook is designed to familiarise legal practitioners not specialised in data protection with this emerging area of law.
