Dear all

For those of you in Guadalajara for the 2016 IGF, note the event below 
on Surveillance and Human Rights Law.

There is also a very strong main session on human rights happening right 
now, which is being live streamed: http://www.igf2016.mx/multimedia.php?t=M

Yesterday IRPC with Amnesty International, Article 19, Derechos 
Digitales, Google, and Mexican bloggers and activists held a very 
successful, though sobering roundtable as part of our DC Meeting session 
- "When Death Threats Go Viral" <http://sched.co/8htr>. We were able to 
provide a space for Mexican, Columbian, and other human rights defenders 
in the LAC and around the world, e.g. Nepal and Thailand, to talk about 
how botnets, and commercial trolls are being used to harass and pursue 
activists online. The transcript and video will be available at a later 
date on the IGF site. The meeting report is attached fyi.

Later today, Hanane Boujemi will be presenting the new work being 
produced from the IRPC Charter, a Study Guide developed by Kevin Risser 
(SC member) and his students. So check in there this afternoon in the 
main Hall for the DC Main Session <http://sched.co/8htw>, 3pm Mexican time.

And, just before that, the IRPC will be hosting a new sort of event; a 
lightening session with the question "What Does Internet Governance have 
to do with refugees?". <http://sched.co/90y5> This 20 minute session 
will be continuing the conversations we started at the 2016 EuroDIG 
meeting in Brussels. Thanks to all who are taking part in this, very 
last minute, opportunity to have this topic on the IGF agenda.

Greetings from Mexico!

Hi all,

Red en Defensa de los Derechos Digitales and the Electronic Frontier 
Foundation would like to invite  you to our workshop *"Surveillance and 
International Human Rights Law"* that will take place tomorrow Thursday 
December 8, 2016 from <x-apple-data-detectors://1>*3pm to 
<x-apple-data-detectors://1>**4pm <x-apple-data-detectors://1> at 
Workshop Room 4*.

The participants are Peter Kimpian (Data Protection Unit - Council of 
Europe), Amos Toh (‎Legal Advisor to the UN Special Rapporteur on 
Freedom of Expression), Katitza Rodriguez (Electronic Frontier 
Foundation), Arjun Jayakumar (Policy Director at SFLC, India),  María 
Cristina Capelo (Google Mexico), and Luis Fernando Garcia from R3D.

The idea of the panel is to explore how different human rights systems 
are approaching surveillance. Which principles have been developed in 
those systems, which are the latest developments and challenges.
