About the International Privacy Law Library

This project aims to make searchable from one location all of the databases specialising in Privacy law available on any of the Legal Information Institutes (LIIs) that are part of WorldLII. The databases currently included are listed above. Individual databases may be searched on their respective host LIIs. The development of this Library is guided an Advisory Committee.

Suggestions for additional databases, or additional database content, may be sent to . WorldLII offers to all data protection authorities to include their decisions/case notes in the Library.


The WorldLII International Privacy Law Library is being expanded in 2014 thanks to funding assistance from the New Zealand Privacy Commissioner and the APEC Privacy Enforcement Workshop (2013). The Library also receives funding assistance from an Australian Research Council Futures Fellow grant to Prof. Dan Svantesson. The Library was originally developed under grant funding from the Australian Research Council to Prof. Graham Greenleaf for the Interpreting Privacy Principles Project. WorldLII thanks all those organisations that provide it with data and other assistance.
