'Secret Global Surveillance Networks' is a report by Privacy International based on an investigation carried out by 40 NGOs in 42 countries. Liberties member the Italian Coalition for Civil Liberties and Rights contributed by conducting research in Italy. The report shows that intelligence sharing is alarmingly under-regulated, opening the door to human rights abuses. It has evolved dramatically, enabling governments to collect, store and share vast troves of personal information. Still, most intelligence-sharing arrangements are secret, and most countries lack domestic regulations on it.
