Cross-border cooperation among supervisory authorities in data privacy law needs to be strengthened due to expectations and hopes vested therein as well as to cope with the contemporary challenges of digitalized and globalized world. The quest for solutions habitually stays within the domain of data privacy law, but the notion of cooperation has been present also in other legal areas. A comparative analysis of parallel cooperation mechanisms, which have already achieved relative maturity, efficiency and success, offers lessons for overcoming inefficiencies in cooperation in data privacy law.
