However, it is hard to regulate the privacy aspects surrounding such free-flowing data by rules strictly based on jurisdiction. This article thereby begins by discussing the importance of data protection regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (G.D.P.R.), followed by a brief analysis of the General Agreement on Trade in Services’ pivotal role in regulating data flows and digital trade, and how it can be further used in checking the World Trade Organisation consistency of various data protection requirements resorted by the European Union (E.U.) so far under the G.D.P.R.. Lastly, the note examines how, post the Brexit transition period, the situation will change for the United Kingdom (U.K.) as it has become a third country for the E.U. data protection regime, with the authors critiquing the various models, including the recent Draft U.K.-E.U. Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement, that may help the U.K. in attaining an “adequacy” status, which is requisite for the continuation of an unconstrained digital trade with the E.U. .</p> Abhishek Rana Rishabha Meena Copyright (c) 2021 Abhishek Rana, Rishabha Meena https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2021-05-05 2021-05-05 6 1 6 28 10.6092/issn.2531-6133/12880 What COVID‐19 does to our Universities https://bolognalawreview.unibo.it/article/view/12618 Matthias Klatt Copyright (c) 2021 Matthias Klatt https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2021-03-27 2021-03-27 6 1 1 5 10.6092/issn.2531-6133/12618
