Chapter Summary

The legal, policy and technological changes discussed in the preceding chapters lead to the question whether "a post 11 September legal protection regime" is needed. This chapter attempts to bring together the main findings in the study and proposes how they could be used to enhance individual protection by improving transparency and proportionality in privacy and data protection laws. The evolution of international data protection laws will be discussed first. The objective is to trace their development and try to predict the future direction. The Human Rights Committee and the European Court for Human Rights (ECtHR) have implied data protection in their case law decisions. This will be discussed and why such a provision is overdue. In lieu of a conclusion, there is a need to postulate the direction of future research as the issues discussed here are still in the process of implementation and legislative development.
