This contribution looks at the concept of privacy impact assessments (PIA) from a human rights viewpoint within the European context. It explores the possibilities and limits of PIA by identifying the useful elements in the case law of the European Court on Human Rights with regard to the right to privacy as contained in Art. 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
