THE EUROPEAN INVESTIGATION ORDER: CHALLENGES TO FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS AND SOVEREIGNTY IN THE DIGITAL AGE

January 15 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The intensive use of electronic communications such as webmail, messaging services apps or social media has led criminal investigations to increasingly rely on electronic evidence(e-evidence). At the same time, the fact that providers of such services and their infrastructures are often outside the Member State´s carrying the investigation, introduces a cross border element even to strictly local cases.

In the context of the DG Justice project “Criminal Justice Access to Digital Evidences in the Cloud –LIVE_FORensics” (LIVE_FOR), the round table aims to discuss four major issues of cross border access to electronic evidence and judicial cooperation. To that end the panel will examine EIO from the perspectives of the Law Enforcement Agencies, Data Protection/Privacy; the protection of victim rights and the notion of sovereignty.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Catherine Van der Heyning: Criminal lawyer at the Brussels bar, post-doctoral researcher in at the University of Antwerp and visiting professor at VUB.
  • Gloria Gónzalez Fuster: Research Professor at VUB. Fundamental rights, privacy, personal data protection, security and surveillance.
  • Paul De Hert.: Professor at VUB, Associated Professor at Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (NL) & Co-Director of LSTS, Human rights, privacy, data protection, European and international criminal law.
  • Mireille Hildebrandt: Research Professor on Interfacing Law and Technology, member of the Research Group for Law Science Technology and Society (LSTS) of the VUB. She is also Chair of Smart Environments, Data Protection and the Rule of Law institute of Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS)Radboud University Nijmegen.
