This is a platform set up by EDRi.org for an easy navigation through the different articles and topics of the Data Protection Directive for Law Enforcement Purposes proposed by the European Commission on 25 January 2012 (EN | FR | DE other languages).

You can browse through the Recitals, Articles and our Position Papers using the menu bar above. Recitals and Articles to which EDRi proposes amendments are marked with an asterisk(*). Most of the amendments we propose are based on the analysis prepared by Privacy International.

On the Topics page, you can also find our position papers on several selected issues of the draft Directive. You can also download all position papers in a single package (.pdf).

On the Committees page you will find all relevant information and documentation on the European Parliament Committees dealing with the draft Directive.

A certain amount of EU-jargon is hard to avoid when discussing these matters; if you need a quick overview of terminology and procedures, EDRi’s Activist Guide to the Brussels Maze (pdf) is there to help.
