Vagelis Papakonstantinou has been appointed a member of the law-making committee drafting the GDPR (and the Police and Criminal Justice Data Protection Directive) implementation law in Greece. The law-making committee, established under the Greek Ministry of Justice, has been in session since 2016 but has not been able to produce a final legislative act yet, although public consultation has already taken place on a previous draft. Under its current mandate the committee needs to conclude all relevant works until end of February 2019.
Vagelis Papakonstantinou new paper with Paul de Hert, Gianclaudio Malgieri, Laurent Beslay and Ignacio Sanchez on “The Right to Data Portability in the GDPR: Towards user-centric Interoperability of Digital Services” to be published in the Computer Law & Security Review, has been pre-published online. Our paper is open access, thanks to a generous grant by EU Commission’s Joint Research Centre.
