[en] The CJEU ruling in Schrems v Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) will be subject to many discussions on constitutional matters for the time to come. It is a landmark case not only for clarifying and applying the basic conceptual understanding of fundamental rights in the EU. Schrems v DPC clarifies therein many further conditions for effective protection of a right, supervision by Member State authorities as well as the global reach of EU fundamental rights. As most essential developments in public law, this case originates from the very specific structural and substantive context of a specific policy area’s administrative law details. But the consequences will radiate far into debates on pluralism of multi-level legal orders in an inter-connected world.
