Activity Synopsis (ID# 15609) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) The objective was threefold: Firstly, to present the Council of Europe and EU standards on data
protection with a special emphasis on the police sector. Secondly, to share experiences with data protection supervisory authorities already established in South-eastern Europe. Thirdly, to gather in a practical and informal way practitioners and experts in the format of round tables on specific related issues. 
Output/Results During the seminar, many issues related to data protection in police practice were debated and gave the opportunity to exchange experiences between experts from the region and international experts. It thereby contributed to raise awareness among practitioners to data protection issues and good practice and to develop contacts between data protection practitioners and crime intelligence specialists in the countries of the region.
Conclusions/Follow Up  
Participants More than 30 crime intelligence specialists from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, ''the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia'' and UNMIK. 
Consultants/Experts Representatives from data protection supervisory authorities from Bosnia and Herzegovina (Mr M. Jozic), Croatia (Ms S. Vuk), Slovenia (Ms A. Mrak) and ''the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia'' (Ms M. Marusic)
