The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights has published a Handbook of European data protection law, to which I was a contributor. This handbook is designed to familiarise legal practitioners who are not specialised in the field of data protection with this area of law. It provides an overview of the European Union’s and the Council of Europe’s applicable legal frameworks. The Handbook can be found here.
