The Dutch Member of European Parliament Marietje Schaake states:
Technologies can help advance human rights such as access to information and freedom of expression. Yet, too many surveillance and intrusion technologies are being produced in Europe and sold to enable human rights violations. We need smart regulation to ensure we facilitate the protection of rights, and not their violation
By sharing the draft report and opening it up for public input, Schaake is calling on “anyone from hackers to journalists, activists to lawyers” to share their input.
