United Nations To Create Special Rapporteur on Right to Privacy

The UN Human Rights Council has adopted a resolution on The Right to Privacy in the Digital Age that will lead to the selection of an independent expert on privacy. According to the resolution, the special rapporteur will have a broad mandate to assess developments, make recommendations, and promote the right to privacy. EPIC joined with 90 other NGOs in support of the resolution. EPIC also recently expressed support for encryption and anonymity in a letter to a UN Rapporteur.
