Research on privacy and data protection law has never been so vibrant, and so challenging. It is vibrant because its subject matter is in constant evolution. Privacy and data protection laws across the world are in a perpetually accelerating movement, and discussions about their need and their future, as well as on their gaps and limitations, appear to be forever intensifying. There is a never-ending effervescence of legislative proposals about data being put forward and debated – internationally, but also regionally; a perennial set of open questions about the ultimate effectiveness of existing and upcoming instruments; a recurrent realization of the potential need to legislate, perhaps differently, perhaps more, the processing of data and more particularly of personal data.
