Eva Simon

Advocacy Officer

I believe that equality and human rights protections are preconditions for the free and open society that everyone deserves.

Eva is a human rights lawyer with special focus on digital rights,
currently working as a senior advocacy officer at the Civil Liberties
Union for Europe (Liberties). She is responsible for freedom of
expression and privacy. Besides her EU-level advocacy work, Eva works
on strategic litigation across EU member states, most recently on the
enforcement of General Data Protection Regulation, which was reported
by the New York Times, Reuters and Bloomberg. She has been active in the
human rights field for more than ten years. Prior to joining the NGO scene,
Eva worked as a media lawyer and a researcher. She was a research
fellow at Central European University (2006), the Benjamin N.
Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University, New York, USA (2005), and at
the Technical University of Budapest, Hungary (2001-2005).

She has authored several expert studies, book chapters and articles on
privacy and media freedom.

I work to ensure that free speech is a reality across Europe — both sides of free speech: the free and pluralistic media market, and the individual rights of people and journalists.
