PI and EFF's comments on the draft UN Cybercrime treaty

Privacy International (PI) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) reviewed the consolidated negotiating document on the UN Cybercrime treaty (full title: “consolidated negotiating document on the general provisions and the provisions on criminalization and on procedural measures and law enforcement of a comprehensive international convention on countering the use of information and communications technologies for criminal purposes) before the fourth session of the Ad-Hoc Committee which is due to consider the text in January 2023.

While PI and EFF are not convinced a global cybercrime treaty is necessary, in our analysis we advocate for having a human-rights-by-design approach in the proposed UN Cybercrime treaty.
