This chapter provides an overview of national regimes on a regional basis, with special attention to the US regime as it constitutes the predominant counterweight to regulatory developments initiated in Europe. Data privacy regimes in the Americas, Asia and Oceania, Africa, and the Middle East are also covered. The transatlantic dialogue on data privacy issues is considered, which has dominated much of the international policy development in the field. The main similarities and differences between US and European approaches to data privacy along with the reasons for these differences are analysed.

Keywords:   national law, US law, EU law, data privacy law, international law
