Geneva Course to Stop Espionage and Surveillance

Geneva Course to Stop Espionage and Surveillance

Pirate Parties International’s UNOG representative Carlos Parlo arrived yesterday for the opening event of the 55th Geneva Course conducted by Geneva for Human Rights – Global Training & Policy Studies. The course is taking place during the 55th session of the UN Human Rights Council, from March 5 to March 22, 2024.

As can be seen by the photos, the topics that they are promoting this year tie in clearly with Pirate policies to stop surveillance and espionage. It is gratifying that after years of PPI claiming that privacy rights are human rights that other organizations are also taking a stand on this issue.

Geneva for Human Rights (gva4HR) is an international training and policy studies organization. Their training includes modules on monitoring and reporting. The courses apparently have a hybrid format to accommodate participants unable to travel to Geneva. You can read more about participating in their programs here and their Geneva Course here:

We look forward to supporting these initiatives and others as part of our goal of advocating for digital rights through the UN and other multinational forums. Perhaps PPI can make its own exhibition at the UN on a similar issue. If you would like to be involved in such an initiative, please contact us.
