Ad Hoc Committee (AHC)

The sixth negotiating session of the Ad Hoc Committee (AHC) to elaborate on a UN cybercrime convention will convene at the United Nations in New York from August 21 – September 1. This session will launch in-depth negotiations of the draft convention. Ambassador (ret.) Deborah McCarthy will serve again as the U.S. Head of Delegation and Lead Negotiator for the session. The U.S. delegation includes officials from the Departments of State and Justice.

The United States continues to seek consensus on the adoption of a narrowly focused criminal justice instrument that advances international cooperation to fight cybercrime while respecting human rights and supporting multistakeholder engagement.
