Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.

Nach den erfolgreichen Verhandlungen im Trilog steht ein grundlegend neues europaisches Datenschutzrecht vor der Tur. Alle mit Datenschutzrecht befassten Unternehmen, Aufsichtsbehorden, die Rechtsanwaltschaft wie die Gerichte mussen sich so fruh wie moglich argumentativ mit den Neuregelungen auseinandersetzen. Der neue Handkommentar zur Datenschutz-Grundverordnung wird bereits deutlich vor Inkrafttreten der Grundverordnung erscheinen und so eine gezielte Vorbereitung auf den neuen Rechtsrahmen ermoglichen. Durch den immer gleichen strukturellen Aufbau der einzelnen Artikelkommentierungen versetzt er den Nutzer in die Lage, die Probleme der Neuregelungen schnell zu erfassen, wichtige Argumente fur die aufgezeigten Rechtsprobleme zu bekommen und, womoglich, Analogien zu uberkommenen Regelungen aus dem BDSG zu ziehen. Besonderen Schwerpunkt legt der Kommentar auf die Bereiche: Verhaltnis der Grund-Verordnung zum partiell weitergeltenden, nationalen (oder: deutschen) Datenschutzrecht Anwendungsbereich der Datenschutz-Grundverordnung "Recht auf Vergessen" Einwilligungs-Erlaubnisfragen rund um die personenbezogene Datenverarbeitung in und durch Unternehmen Arbeitnehmerdatenschutz Rechtschutzmogl

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich BWL - Recht, Note: 1,3, Hochschule fur Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Grenzuberschreitende Datenubermittlungen gehoren heutzutage zum alltaglichen Geschaftsleben multinationaler Konzerne. Ferner sind erstmalige Entfaltung oder auch der Ausbau vorhandener wirtschaftlicher Betatigungen uber nationale Grenzen hinaus zu einer Frage der Existenzsicherung fur nationale Unternehmen geworden. Denn weltweite Datennetze sowie moderne Technologien vereinfachen zunehmend den Datenaustausch auf internationaler Ebene. Im Zeitalter sich rasch entwickelnder Informationssysteme nimmt dabei das Thema Datenschutz eine wichtige Rolle ein. Schliesslich sind rechtliche Beschrankungen des Informationsflusses allgegenwartig, die unter datenschutzrechtlichen Gesichtspunkten in dieser Arbeit aufgezeigt werden. Rechtsprobleme treten insofern auf, wenn man der rasanten technischen Entwicklung durch schnelle und flexible rechtliche Losungen" zu folgen versucht. Deutlich ist eine verstarkte Internationalisierung des Datenschutzes zu beobachten und dringlich stellt sich in diesem Kontext die Frage nach einem einheitlichen, internationalen Datenschutz
