AUC IURIDICA

Acta Universitatis Carolinae Iuridica (AUC Iuridica) is a legal journal published since 1955, which presents longer essays as well as short articles on topics relevant for legal theory and international, European and Czech law. It also publishes works concerning current legislative problems.

Although intended primarily for domestic audience, AUC Iuridica is useful also for foreign experts, who can take advantage of summaries in foreign languages (English, German and French) and key words, which are systematically added to the main articles and essays.

The published articles are subject to peer reviews. If necessary, reviewed texts are sent back to the author for revision.

AUC Iuridica accepts contributions from any contributor on any current legal topic.

The journal is registered in the Czech National Bibliography (kept by the National Library of the Czech Republic) and in the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (kept by the American Association of Law Libraries).

The journal is archived in Portico.

abstract

Globalization confronts the European Union with many new challenges. One of these concerns the applicability of harmonized EU law to cross-border situations involving third countries. In its recent judgment in Google/CNIL (C-507/17), on the territorial reach of the EU data protection rules and the “right to be forgotten”, the CJEU introduces a new “logic of globalization” which must be distinguished from the traditional “logic of the internal market”. While the latter justifies extraterritoriality in case internal market interests are affected, restraint characterizes the former. The global horizon does not diminish pertinent EU interests and objectives, but their effective implementation is threatened by the absence of the ensured enforcement of EU law and potential countermeasures. In context of globalization, it is international collaboration rather than unilateralism that would enable the EU to protect its interests and those of its citizens more adequately.
