A UN watchdog has called for a new international agreement on privacy following a review of the expanding global array of surveillance measures and databases advanced by governments in the cause of counter-terrorism.

The special rapporteur on human rights, Martin Scheinin, said the UN should create a “a global declaration on data protection and data privacy” in response.

His report, delivered to the UN’s Human Rights Council, describes the expansion of watchlists, border checks, financial data sharing, interception of communications, biometrics and ID registers in recent years.

“States no longer limit exceptional surveillance schemes to combating terrorism and instead make these surveillance powers available for all purposes,” he added.

“Most worrying, however, is that these technologies and policies are being exported to other countries and often lose even the most basic protections in the process.”
