Abstract

The role of international mediation and mediation more generally in data protection and privacy law can be an effective tool to resolving data disputes. This article will examine the data protection laws of Indonesia, Australia, Singapore, the Philippines, European Union and China. This comparative examination is timely, with the creation of the Convention on Enforcement of International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation (Singapore Convention) which opened for signing on 7 August 2019 and the associated Model Law. If implemented and utilised, the Singapore Convention has the potential to become an effective legal mechanism to assist in resolving cross-border personal data disputes.

Keywords: international mediation, mediation, data protection, data disputes, privacy law, Singapore Convention
