June 30, 2014 - by Association for Proper Internet Governance.

On 30 June 2014, pursuant to Resolution 68/167 of the United National General Assembly, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (HCHR) published a report on the protection and promotion of the right to privacy in the context of domestic and extraterritorial surveillance and/or the interception of digital communications and the collection of personal data, including on a mass scale. The Association for Proper Internet Governance (APIG) thanks and commends the High Commissioner for this courageous, frank, objective, well reasoned and balanced report.
