"The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic poses a global public health challenge of unprecedented proportions. In order to tackle it, countries around the world need to engage in coordinated, evidence-based responses grounded in solidarity, support and respect for human rights. This means that measures cannot lead to disproportionate and unnecessary actions. It is also vital that measures are not extended once we are no longer in a state of emergency."
"Otherwise, the actions taken under exceptional circumstances today can have significant repercussions on human rights both today and tomorrow.
In this document pool we will be listing relevant articles and documents related to the intersection of the COVID-19 crisis and digital rights. This will allow you to follow the developments of surveillance measures, content moderation, tracking and privacy-threatening actions in Europe as they relate to the coronavirus pandemic, as well as offer the set of perspectives and recommendations put forth by a host of digital rights watchdog organisations across Europe and the world. The document pool is updated regularly to ensure the delivery of the most up-to-date information."
