Over many decades the OECD has played an important role in promoting respect for privacy as a fundamental value and a condition for the free flow of personal data across borders. The cornerstone of OECD work on privacy is its newly revised Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data (2013).
Current work is examining privacy-related issues raised by large-scale data use and analytics. An expert roundtable was held in support of that work in March 2014. It is part of a broader project on data-driven innovation and growth.
