ECtHR: Damages for Privacy Violation by Video Surveillance at University

On 28 November 2017, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) held that the video surveillance installed at the University of Montenegro’s School of Mathematics in areas where two professors taught, had amounted to an interference with their right to privacy. The ECtHR awarded significant non-pecuniary damages to each professor.
This ECtHR decision will be of significance for compensation under the new data protection regime in the EU because regarding the protection of the right to privacy  the case law of the Court of the European Union (CJEU) has been intertwined and aligned with the case law of the ECtHR (see Boehm/Andrees, CR 2016, 146-154). As of May 2018, data subjects will have a right to compensation for "non-material damage" suffered as a result of a GDPR infringement, Art. 82 (1) GDPR (see also Recitals 85 and 146 GDPR).
