"Specifying the GDPR: Member States perspectives" Series - Germany


One continent, one law’ is a motto that has been connected to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to emphasize its key role for overcoming the fragmentation of the European Union (EU) data protection landscape. Nevertheless, and despite the Regulation’s direct applicability across all EU Member States, a multitude of national laws already co-exist with its provisions, and a few more are expected. These national laws specify the GDPR rules, operationalize them, and potentially modulate them. They might, in some cases, also appear to contradict the GDPR, be in friction with other national approaches, and/or trigger questions about the exact applicable rules in certain scenarios.

The next event will review developments in Germany, while continuing a general discussion on how to apprehend national developments across Member States.

  • Gloria González Fuster (Research Professor at VUB) Chair
  • Orla Lynskey (Associate Professor of Law at London School of Economics, General rapporteur on Data Protection at the FIDE 2020 Congress)

  • Andreas Wiebe (Professor at Georg-August-University of Göttingen)
