In an Online Seminar on 8 September, the meaning and legal impact of this judgment will be discussed. Co-organized by the University Portsmouth, Queen Mary University of London, and Utrecht University.
On 21 June 2022, the Court of Justice of the European Union handed down its judgment C-817/19 on the legality of the EU’s Passenger Name Records Directive. The case had been brought by the Belgian organisation Ligue des Droits Humains. Besides Belgium from whose court the reference was made, 14 Member States intervened in the case, an indication of the political salience of the matter. The central question in the case is the relationship of the right to privacy and data protection in EU law (including the GDPR) and the scope of state surveillance of people travelling in the form of state access to personal data collected by travel companies regarding their customers.
On 8 September, from 15.00-17.15 (Amsterdam Time) an online seminar will be organized to discuss the meaning and legal impact of this judgment. In this meeting, co-organized by researchers from the University Portsmouth, Queen Mary University of London, and Utrecht University, they will address amongst others the impact of this judgment for: the different standards applied to internal and extra-EU travel; the use of AI and large-scale databases in the EU; internal security; profiling and oversight mechanisms.
