Privacy International’s Oral Statement to the Human Rights Council 37th Ordinary Session

On 6 March 2018, Privacy International participated in an interactive dialogue with the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy at the 37th Ordinary Session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva. We highlighted the growing trend of governments embracing hacking to facilitate their surveillance activities, and recommended the development of a human rights analysis of government hacking for surveillance purposes,  with the view to forming specific recommendations based on international human rights law.
