New report on human rights impact of technology sales to China

Rights and Democracy has released a new report calling on the Canadian government to guarantee that Canadian security and exports to China respect human rights in that country. The paper is authored with Greg Walton:

“According to the paper, called Human Rights at Risk on the Cyber-battlefield, human rights safeguards are required because there is a credible and reasonable expectation that security and surveillance technology sold to the People’s Republic of China will be used to repress free speech and violate a number of related human rights. Accordingly, the Canadian government and the corporations that will profit directly from the sale of such technology have at the very least a moral obligation to assess the potential effects these security and surveillance systems would have on human rights in the countries where they will be used.”
