MLATs, Jurisdiction, and Cooperation

On March 7-8, 2016, the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice held the high-level expert meeting, Crossing Borders: Jurisdiction in Cyberspace” as part of The Netherland’s presidency of the Council of the EU. The goal was to discuss concrete proposals for the improvement of international cooperation on issues related to access to user data across borders.

Bertrand de la Chapelle and Paul Fehlinger were invited to participate in one of three workshops where they addressed “situations in which mutual legal assistance is ineffective because of legal differences between countries or time consuming mutual legal assistance processes,” as well as “conflicting regulations hamper[ing] cooperation with private parties.”

The Netherlands requested that the Internet & Jurisdiction Project submit a written contribution to the meeting, which can be found here.
