Hearing on human rights in the digital environment

The Inter-american Commision on Human Rights (CIDH) will host on 28 February a thematic hearing on ‘Digital intelligence, cybersecurity and freedom of expression’ in Bogotá, Colombia. The hearing was granted upon a request from Asociación por los Derechos Civiles (ADC) and it will be an opportunity to bring issues of human rights in the digital environment to a relevant intergovernmental space in the region. Other organisations such as Derechos Digitales, Electronic Frontier Foundation, R3D (México) and Fundación Karisma (Colombia) will also follow the event. The agenda will include discussions on themes such as cybercrime, data retention, digital evidence, freedom of information and digital literacy.
