Panel Description

Introductory Remarks by European Commissioner for Justice, Didier Reynders

For years now, it seems we have been on something of a merry go round regarding transfers between the EU and the U.S. – an adequacy decision is adopted, and then subsequently struck down. Currently, a new EU-US adequacy decision has been proposed and is being discussed: the EU-US Data Privacy Framework. Yet the proposed decision has already been subject to a range of different critiques, from a range of different actors. Against this background, this high-level panel will bring together stakeholders from politics, industry, civil society, and academia, to discuss the status and future of EU-U.S. transfers. Amongst others, the following questions will be discussed:

• What is the status of the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework?
• What are the obstacles which remain to its adoption?
• Which criticisms have been put forward against the framework?
• What is the future of the framework moving forward?
