On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) invalidated the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, a principal legal method for the transfer of personal data from the EU to the United States. The CJEU ruling further cast doubt on the standard contractual clauses, the other means of effecting such international transfers. In an article for The Lawfare Institute, Alston & Bird Senior Counsel Peter Swire and Georgetown University Law Center professor Kenneth Propp explore the geopolitical implications of this groundbreaking ruling.
