From Privacy International:

Privacy International is pleased to announce commencement of the European Privacy and Human Rights (EPHR) Project in partnership with the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) and the Center for Media and Communications Studies at Central European University (CEU) funded by the European Commission under the Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme (JLS/2008/FRC-1).

The EPHR project will carry out a comprehensive review of privacy law across all EU Member states which in itself is a substantial task, but further to this, the EPHR project will deliver the results of this study in a number of innovative and interactive ways with the aim of increasing awareness of privacy rights across the European region and helping to empower all citizens to take control of their own privacy in this technologically complex age.

As well as delivering an inclusive survey, ranking privacy across the EU and highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of legislation throughout the European region the EPHR project will disseminate this data in the countries’ language. Further, through a range of technologies and platforms, the EPHR project will allow the citizens of Europe to explore their rights in innovative ways.
