Amnesty International submits this document in response to the call for comments issued by the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression to inform her report to the 50th session of the Human Rights Council. While there are several challenges and threats to media in the digital age, this submission is specifically focused on the threat that unlawful targeted surveillance poses to journalists. It contains global trends and includes some country examples. The submission should not be seen as an exhaustive account of the organization’s research on these matters.
