Cross-Border Data in Criminal Proceedings and the Future of Digital Justice
When: Wednesday, October 14, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Where: Zoom, online
Within the EU and across the Atlantic, the investigation and prosecution of crime increasingly rely on the collection and exchange of data stored abroad or controlled by companies subject to foreign jurisdictions. Cross-border access, transfer, and processing of electronic information by investigating and prosecuting authorities constitute fundamental rights-sensitive measures which pose serious legal, jurisdictional, and practical dilemmas.
This webinar will feature a presentation of the Report developed by the Task Force on Cross-Border Data in Criminal Proceedings and the Future of Digital Justice set up jointly by CEPS and the Global Policy Institute at Queen Mary University of London.
The report examines the exact ways in which data can be requested, disclosed, and exchanged across borders in full respect of the multi-layered web of criminal justice, privacy, and human rights standards applying to intra-EU and international cooperation for digital evidence-gathering in criminal matters. It presents the result of the deliberations among members of the Task Force.
The discussion will be led by Sergio Carrera, Senior Research Fellow and Head of the Justice and Home Affairs Programme at CEPS and will feature:
- Professor Valsamis Mitsilegas, School of Law, Queen Mary University of London
- Marco Stefan, CEPS
- Birgit Sippel MEP, Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament
- Katherina Neuffer, Permanent Representation of the Federal Republic of Germany to the European Union
