Data Protection in Latin America: Opportunities and Challenges for Human Rights

Data Protection

Project Description

In this document, Asociación por los Derechos Civiles analyzes the regulatory systems for data pro- tection in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico both in comparison to each other and in comparison to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union. The purpose of this document is to identify opportunities and challenges for human rights in light of the role which personal data has taken on by virtue of contemporary technological development.

This project was completed thanks to research carried out by Asociación por los Derechos Civiles (ADC) in Argentina, InternetLab in Brazil, Derechos Digitales in Chile and Red en la Defensa de los Derechos Digitales (R3D) in Mexico.
