GPD inputs into Ad Hoc Committee negotiations on possible cybercrime convention

28 Jul 2022

The UN Third Committee’s Ad Hoc Committee on Cybercrime continues negotiations on a possible convention on cybercrime, with discussions on the provisions on “international cooperation, technical assistance, preventive measures, the mechanism of implementation, the final provisions and the preamble” chapters taking place at the next session.

We appreciate the opportunity to provide our input to the discussions ahead of the first reading of these chapters, which will take place at AHC’s third substantive meeting at the end of August in New York.

In this response, we focus on recommendations to ensure that the convention respects, protects and promotes human rights. Read the full submission here.
