LAWFARE – Towards OECD Principles for Government Access to Data: Can Democracies Show the Way?

, ,

In the Monday, December 20th Lawfare article titled Towards OECD Principles for Government Access to Data: Can Democracies Show the Way?, Theodore Christakis, Kenneth Propp and Peter Swire discuss the role that democracies can play in establishing trusted international standards for cross-border data flows.  Drawing upon documents made available by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) as well as interviews conducted by the team with governments, institutions, corporate bodies and academic thought leaders in the field, the authors provide a high-level summary of the current state of play in OECD negotiations, new challenges and approaches involved in balancing national security needs with data protection and privacy rights, and what to expect as we approach the new year.
