In an op-ed for Euractiv, former Minister of State for European Affairs Dick Roche explains why the U.S. and EU may never be able to overcome their different approaches to privacy. Roche writes the U.S. and EU have moved in opposite directions regarding privacy for years, and those contrasting attitudes were highlighted with the "Schrems II" decision. "The matter of fact is that (U.S.) surveillance laws are based on an approach that is antithetical to the privacy structure put in place in Europe," Roche writes. "And (U.S.) responses to date provide little room for confidence that that reality is recognised in Washington."
