EPIC presented the 2010 International Privacy Champion Award to the Honorable Michael Kirby for his role in the development of the OECD Privacy Guidelines of 1980. The OECD Guidelines consist of eight principles that have provided the basis for national laws, international agreements, and privacy frameworks that have been adopted around the world. “The international privacy community owes Justice Kirby a huge debt for his critical role working with leading experts from North America, Europe and Asia to develop the Guidelines,” said Jennifer Stoddart, Privacy Commissioner of Canada. The Award will be presented to Justice Kirby at the OECD in Paris on March 10, 2010. The 2009 EPIC International Privacy Champion Award was given to Italian jurist Professor Stefano Rodota. The 2010 EPIC US Privacy Champion Award was given to Beth Givens, founder and director of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse in San Diego, California.
