[PUBLICATION] Karine BANNELIER - The U.N. Cybercrime Convention Should Not Become a Tool for Political Control or the Watering Down of Human Rights

on the January 31, 2023

Karine Bannelier, Director of CyberAlps, has published an article outlining the key points from the last UN cybercrime convention.


"Enhanced cooperation is key to combating cybercrime. The UN Convention could, together with the Budapest Convention, become an important tool to facilitate such international cooperation. But this kind of cooperation requires that the “crimes” included in the convention are commonly understood and recognized by all parties involved. It also requires the introduction of robust human rights safeguards in order to limit the risks of misuse or abuse, and to create trust among States."
