US Ambassador to the EU Anthony L. Gardner

The 2015 Mackenzie Stuart Lecture was delivered by U.S. Ambassador to the EU Anthony L. Gardner on Thursday 30 January 2015, and was entitled 'Facing Legal Challenges in US - EU Relations'.

In his Mackenzie-Stuart Lecture, Ambassador Anthony Gardner focused his remarks on two substantive areas where legal challenges to US-EU relations could be found. In the implementation of UN sanctions, the Ambassador highlighted the frequent reversal of EU sanctions decisions before the EU court due to the limited evidential basis often relied upon to support the listing of individuals and organizations alleged to have terrorist connections. In the realm of data privacy, Ambassador Gardner cautioned that data protection should not become data protectionism and highlighted the potential economic benefits to be gained from a global digital economy.
