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 give the opportunity to present the Report that has been elaborated during 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.
