Data protection and vulnerability

Pasquale Stanzione


This contribution describes the evolution of the right to privacy from the traditional right to be let alone to data protection, enshrined as an autonomous right in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. While illustrating the most innovative features of this right, the author also emphasizes that data protection represents an essential guarantee for freedom, equality and dignity with respect to vulnerabilities: both traditional ones and those induced by new technologies.
