Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The article examines a core right of the data subject: access to own personal data in ECHR judgments. The Court’s rulings on information privacy have relied on Article 8 of the Convention in general and its limb of right to respect for private life in particular. This also applies to cases on access to own data and accordingly, interpretation of the provision will constitute a central focus of analysis. Furthermore, Article 10 on freedom of expression and its freedom to receive information are significant for the right of access to own information.
