    This contribution by Jörg Polakiewicz argues that the Council's Convention on Data Protection (Convention 108) remains highly relevant as a possible standard for protecting privacy and data protection worldwide. Jörg Polakiewicz, Head of Human Rights Policy and Development at Council of Europe, To develop this further the interaction between the Convention and the European Union's framework for assessing the adequacy of Data Protection regimes outside the European Economic Area (EEA) should be better reconciled. This should be part of the modernization of the Convention now underway. This talk was part of the OxPILS Conference 'The 'Right to be Forgotten' and Beyond' held on 12 June 2012. This Conference was the culmination of 'Mending the Tangled Web? Information Privacy 3.0', a series which was generously made possible with funding from a Joint Programme between the European Union and the Council of Europe.

    This contribution by Michael Donohue, Senior Policy Analyst at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), presents a personal perspective on this issue grounded in the OECD's canon. Michael Donoghue argues that the OECD framework has throughout its history emphasised the importance of ensuring the free flow of information. Recent socio-technological developments raise a number of new issues here notably the role of the individuals in putting privacy at risk through the data they create and disseminate. These issues have been under consideration as part of the review of the OCED privacy framework which is now underway.

    Data Protection and Freedom of Expression in the Age of Web 2.0 - What should be the future shape of transnational governance regimes in this area?

    This contribution by Thomas Zerdick, Legal Officer at the European Commission's Data Protection Unit, presents the Commission's understanding of the interface between Data Protection and freedom of expression within the EU. The presentation argues that in accordance with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights Member States the Data Protection framework does apply to this field and Member States may only provide exemptions which respect the essence of the right to Data Protection and follow the principle of proportionality and necessity. The absolute exemption for private and personal processing should only apply when the individual is not disseminating data to an indefinite number of the public. At the same time, Thomas Zerdick emphases the wide margin of appreciation which Member States are allowed here. The talk was the keynote address of the OxPILS Conference 'The 'Right to be Forgotten' and Beyond' held on 12 June 2012. This Conference was the culmination of 'Mending the Tangled Web?

    This contribution by Anthony House, a Manager at Google leading its central public policy team in Europe the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), presents Google's position on Data Protection, the Right to be Forgotten and search engines. Antony House argues that the Right to be Forgotten should not be applied to search engines in so far as they are involved in the dissemination, discovery and consumption of lawfully published information. The talk was the keynote address of the OxPILS Conference 'The 'Right to be Forgotten' and Beyond' held on 12 June 2012. This Conference was the culmination of 'Mending the Tangled Web?

    This contribution by Peter Hustinx, European Data Protection Supervisor and formerly President of the Dutch Data Protection Authority, presents an international perspective on the interface between Data Protection and freedom of expression. Peter Hustinx argues the proposed European Data Protection Regulation should avoid specific reference to journalism literature and art but should very clearly require Member States only provide freedom of expression exemptions from Data Protection to the extent necessary to strike a proper balance between fundamental rights. He also argues that it might be helpful to state that the exemptions should not affect the essential elements of either the right to freedom of expression or the right to data protection.
