What guides our priorities

We believe timeless values, public safety, and the rule of law must all endure as technology advances. We don’t have all the answers, but we hope our legal cases, policy recommendations, and support for a new set of bilateral agreements can serve as contributions toward a modern system that works for everyone.

International agreements

Allies often work together to share evidence and keep their people safe, but many of today’s evidence-sharing treaties are outdated. Outdated treaties make it harder for law enforcement agencies to stop crime and lead to confusion about people’s rights and the obligations of technology companies that hold people’s data. A new set of agreements among likeminded democratic governments can provide needed clarity and enhance law enforcement cooperation.
