Chapter 10: Data adequacy post-Brexit: Avoiding disruptions in cross-border data flows

Brexit / BOOK
Andreas Aktoudianakis

Date: 17/06/2020

Andreas Aktoudianakis stresses the importance of maintaining cross-border data flows and fostering long-term EU-UK cooperation in the digital and tech sectors. These will prove crucial for not only addressing the longer-term strategic interests of both parties but also responding to the COVID-19 crisis effectively. This chapter offers an overview of the EU Digital Single Market strategy, outlines three possible scenarios leading toward a decision on data adequacy, and provides recommendations for avoiding disruption on cross-border data flows and boosting development and responsible tech during the post-COVID-19 economic recovery.

This chapter is part of the publication Towards an ambitious, broad, deep and flexible EU-UK partnership?, which examines the political, economic, social and institutional implications of the UK’s departure from the EU in different policy fields, as well as its impact on UK politics and EU integration. The contributions in this book, all by leading experts on Brexit, draw from discussions held in the Brexit Think Tank Group, which was set up by the EPC in the aftermath of the 2016 referendum. Through this format, the EPC facilitated a continuing exchange between the European Commission’s Task Force for Relations with the United Kingdom and the policy community.
