Abstract

[Extract] The vast majority of research published in this journal since its first edition in 2011 has approached data protection and privacy from a European perspective, by focusing on legal developments in Europe or using these developments for comparative purposes. This is perhaps unsurprising given the relatively long-standing protection of data privacy in Europe. Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, adopted in the post-war period, provides explicit protection for the right to respect for private life while the German Länder of Hesse adopted the world’s first data protection law in 1970 with subsequent developments at national, Council of Europe, and EU (then EC) level over the following quarter of a century.
