Abstract [en]

Challenging theLegality of Secret Surveillance for National Security Purposes: Comparing USand European Standing Rules. Theright to privacy is a constitutionally protected right in both USConstitutional Law and European Constitutional Law. In order for the rightsprotection to be real, judicial remedies are required. This paper sets out toanalyze this particular question focusing on privacy right violations throughsecret surveillance measures within the national security context. Similaritiesand differences concerning access to judicial review and the scope of privacyrights between European and US Constitutional Law are identified and addressedtaking recent case law in both systems into account. The implications of theseconclusions for cooperation between the US and EU is discussed. It is arguedthat the establishment of a Privacy Shield Ombudsperson in the US does notsatisfy the requirements set up by European Constitutional law and that thismechanism does not remedy the differences in the right to judicial remedy.
