Regional Focus and Outreach
About the Project
CIPL seeks to engage with privacy regulators around the world on the important privacy and information management issues of the day. We regularly participate in and speak at gatherings of global privacy regulators, organize delegation visits to them or host meetings for them at our offices. We also prepare public comments in response to public consultations of government authorities and regulators.
Current CIPL Engagements:
As Brazil continues its ongoing process to develop a comprehensive privacy law, the Centre for Information Policy Leadership is pursuing a special initiative to facilitate and support international expert engagement with key Brazilian stakeholders. As part of this outreach initiative, CIPL submitted written comments (English and Portuguese) on the draft privacy law released by the Ministry of Justice in January 2015 and led a CIPL member delegation to Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro in March 2015. In October 2015, CIPL and the Centro de Direito, Internet e Sociedade do Instituto Brasiliense de Direito Público (CEDIS/IDP), a legal institute based in Brazil, co-hosted a two-day Global Data Privacy Dialogue in Brasilia, at the IDP’s conference facilities. CIPL is currently reviewing more recent draft privacy privacy bills, including the revised bill released by the Ministry of Justice in October 2015 and is preparing written comments.
