Subtopic 2: European approach on data governance

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 2 The new EU legislation on data is creating new scenarios. Despite it, the EU GDPR, the CoE Convention 108+ and the “privacy at all cost” principle are still central as the Digital Governance Act recognizes the prevalence of privacy legislation. Tension exists between the need to explore data and to open it for the PA to be transparent and the need to protect citizens’ right to privacy. The new EU legislation (Data Governance Act and Data Act) tries to strike a balance between the two. The EU values enshrined in GDPR are being adopted elsewhere, both because of EU influence and because of recognition of their validity.
