The Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, the Permanent Mission of Ireland and the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Korea are pleased to invite you to the side event on the margins of the 52nd session of the Human Rights Council.

This event aims to bring together key interlocutors to reflect on concerns raised by the misuse of new technologies worldwide in purported service of counter-terrorism and countering or preventing violent extremism. It will further review developments in the field of new technologies, including in particular biometrics, artificial intelligence, surveillance technology, and drones, and will consider the challenges that increasingly ubiquitous use of these technologies pose for the promotion and protection of human rights worldwide.
