This seminar will explore the viability of a potential agreement between Australia and the EU and will view this debate through the lens of: (1) the ongoing trade negotiations between the jurisdictions, (2) the existing adequacy agreements which may inspire any such developments, and also (3) the implications of the recent Schrems II decision. Broader reflections on what this might mean for the UK will also be made.
