Asian Data Privacy Laws

This chapter explains the limited progress toward data privacy laws that has so far occurred in the ASEAN (South-East Asia) member countries of Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, and Brunei, and in the ASEAN candidate member Timor Leste. In some of these countries there are constitutional or other privacy protections worth noting, such as e-commerce, human rights or ombudsman laws, or the early stages of proposals for data privacy legislation. The chapter outlines such privacy protections as do exist in these five countries, and provides a brief background to the political and legal systems of each country within which future data privacy developments will take place. There are occasional surprising developments, such as the specific constitutional protection of personal information in the Constitution of Timor Leste.

Keywords:   data protection, privacy, Asia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Brunei, Timor Leste, ASEAN
