Civil Society Briefing for AHC-FOC Membership: Digital Rights, Human Rights, and a UN Cybercrime Treaty

In December 2019, an Ad Hoc Committee was established to elaborate a UN convention on cybercrime, and substantive negotiations will soon launch in January 2022. As part of this process, civil society will have the opportunity to engage in the Ad Hoc Committee. Ahead of the first negotiating session, the United States would like to offer a platform for civil society to offer their viewpoints and recommendations to AHC-FOC Membership on the treaty process, particularly as it relates to digital rights and human rights. A portion of the time during this session will be reserved as an open forum for any civil society individual or organization that may wish to share views and recommendations, and whom are not already scheduled to do so.
