CGHR is delighted to announce the publication of a new report, 'ICTS and Human Rights Practice', by CGHR Associate Dr Ella McPherson. 

In 2014, a CGHR research team began a study of how the use of information and communication technologies affects the right to life, resulting in this report and the ICTs and Human Rights blog. This report was originally a discussion document prepared by CGHR Research Associate Dr Ella McPherson in collaboration with the mandate of the Special Rapporteur and ahead of a meeting of experts held in Cambridge in February 2015. The discussion document, as well as the discussion at the expert meeting, contributed to the Special Rapporteur’s thematic report on the use of information and communications technologies to secure the right to life, presented at the 29th session of the UN Human Rights Council.

The report will be launched on Monday 19 October at 4pm in the Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road Cambridge (room S1). All are welcome to attend.
