Le droit au respect de la vie privée : les défis digitaux, une perspective de droit comparé
The report titled “Le droit au respect de la vie privée : les défis digitaux, une perspective de droit comparé”, authored by Prof. Pierre-Emmanuel Moyse and researched by the CIPP own Eda Uludere (LLM McGill), François Le Moine (LLM McGill) and Georgina Hartono (L2, BCL-LLB) was recently published by the European Parliament. The Report aims to provide a comprehensive framework of the Canadian privacy regime, with an emphasis on the privacy law implications of the current-day challenges posed by digitalization. More specifically, it elaborates on the right to privacy from the Canadian perspective, through analysis of the federal and provincial privacy laws which regulate both the private and public sector and summarizing the key jurisprudence which influenced the field in recent years. Finally, it conceptualizes the right to privacy from the viewpoint of personality rights, tort law, constitutional law and privacy class actions. For researchers, policy-makers and practitioners, the Report serves as a well-rounded reference point on the Canadian right to privacy in its historical and theoretical contexts, as well as provides a future outlook to the field in the digital era.
Prof. Moyse presented the Report at the European Parliament on November 2018; the Honorable Marie Deschamps was the discussant for the occasion. You may find the version in French (official translations in German, English, Italian, Spanish to come) here.
