On 5 February 2016, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) and the ICRC hosted the fifth workshop on data protection as part of good governance in international organisations at the ICRC Humanitarium, in Geneva.
This workshop was the fifth of a series of workshops initiated by the EDPS over ten years ago, which aims at bringing together international organisations to:
- Share experience and best practice in the field of data protection and analyse its impact as part of good governance within international organisations;
- Analyse the most recent regulatory developments at international level in the area of privacy and data protection and the potential implications of such developments for international organisations;
- Analyse the state of play of data protection within international organisations;
- Discuss the progress made since the last workshop.
Previous editions of this workshop took place in Geneva (2005), Munich (2007), Florence (2010) and Brussels (2012). More information can be found on the EDPS website.
