Session on "new tools" to protect privacy and personal data. A case-study on (European) approach to privacy impact assessment

This session will provide an overview to the main findings of the projects carried out by VUB-LSTS (predominantly) with regard to privacy impact assessments (PIA), starting with the EU co-funded PIAF (“A Privacy Impact Assessment Framework for data protection and privacy rights”; 2011-2012), which reviewed existing PIA frameworks worldwide, surveyed opinions of national data protection authorities (DPAs) on an optimal PIA policy and, finally, provided a set of recommendations for PIA policy-makers and practitioners.

This session will be concluded by proposing adaptation of the so-called environmental democracy to the needs and reality of privacy.

The points in this session will be contrasted with the experience of India.

Session on co-operation of data protection authorities

"Improving Practical and Helpful cooperation between Data Protection Authorities", 2013-15. This session will provide a preliminary analysis of the (legal) factors that pose as obstacles to and/or encourage co-operation between DPAs worldwide in enforcing privacy and data protection laws. Such an analysis aims at creating a 'wish-list', i.e. at identifying what measures could be taken to reduce barriers and to further foster co-operation.

This session will be concluded by discussing what DPAs' can learn about co-operation from European and international competition law.

The points in this session will be contrasted with the experience of India.

Indian perspectives on this topic will be taken into account.
