Asian Data Privacy Laws

This chapter discusses the developments concerning global or regional data privacy agreements and instruments likely to affect Asian countries in future. The overall picture is one of continuing competition for global influence over the shape of data privacy developments, and their trade and human rights implications. The issues are usually more complex than a simple ‘USA v Europe’ divide. The main international developments considered are: APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation)’s Cross-Border Privacy Rules system (CBPRs); the 2013 revision of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) privacy Guidelines, and its ‘globalization’; the Council of Europe Convention 108 ‘modernization’ and ‘globalization’; the proposed EU data protection Regulation; United Nations developments including the surveillance resolution and proposed new International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) protocol; and the possibility of law reform in the USA. Discussion of the strengthening of global privacy standards, and five prospects for global or regional agreements, conclude the chapter.
