The EU’s security policy must be designed, and unfold, in full respect of fundamental rights. This imperative emanates directly from the EU’s Treaties, and obliges EU institutions to keep in mind compliance with EU fundamental rights at all stages of policy-making, as well as beyond. This, however, does not always appear to be an easy task – especially insofar as compliance with the fundamental rights to privacy and personal data protection are concerned.
