NEW: 11 countries ink joint statement on countering commercial #spyware proliferation & abuse.

Cite "fundamental" national security & foreign policy interest 1/

🇦🇺#Australia 🇨🇦#Canada 🇨🇷#CostaRica 🇩🇰#Denmark 🇫🇷#France 🇳🇿#NewZealand 🇳🇴#Norway 🇸🇪#Sweden 🇨🇭#Switzerland 🇬🇧#UK 🇺🇸#US We, the governments of Aust...The misuse of these tools p...To advance these interests,...engaging additional partner...
2/ I'd say the joint statement on commercial #spyware is unprecedented.

A few years ago spyware like #Pegasus was was treated as a human rights issue.

But the dizzying speed of proliferation made big problems for governments, forcing them to prepare positions & action.
3/ The statement's commitment guardrails for accountable domestic #spyware use is important.

But devil will be in the implementations. Civil society will be watching.

(Note: issue wasn't covered in White House Spyware Executive Order on Monday, so nice to see USA commit here) Image

A chance this could be #1970s but more likely #1980s as shoulder pads very exaggerated. Has such disco diva vamp glamour. So I mixed a bit of vampire and disco as inspiration with a contemporary character! It's in pure silk and by CACHÉ another fab American label #vintagefashion
Another piece very 'vamp' glamour. Have a few drop dead gorgeous #goth dresses by Sarah Whitworth whose label Deadlier than the Male based Hyper Hyper Kensington High St. Ghost, Pam Hogg also there

If anyone claims the Trans Right's (#TRAs) movement is about 'love & acceptance' just show them this thread. It is anything but - it is violent, misogynistic, homophobic, and driven by pure Narcissism. Even most Far-Right groups do not behave like this. #LetWomenSpeakNZ (1/10)
Here's some video footage showing barriers being kicked down (The boundaries of others tends to be an issue for #TRAs and the TQ+ movement).

🧵So listen up #NewZealand - especially all of those who stood up for #TransRights yesterday. I need to tell you about a man named Sanjana Hattotuwa and some advice he had for the recent teaching union conference, where he was a Keynote Speaker /1
This man is an expert on Social Media, he spends hours every day researching and delving into the worst of the filth and abuse and horror online, and believe me, it's worse than any of us could ever know. Not all heroes wear capes. One of them works for Otago University. /2
At the conference, during the Q&A someone asked what country we could look to as an example of how to push back against this radicalisation and programming of hatred, fear and violence which is welling up online.

He looked at us and said 'You're living in it.' /3

Nova Scotia College of Nurses is the regulator for #Nursing profession in the Province of Nova Scotia, #Canada and in coming weeks will be rolling out another 'first-in-Canada' Nursing Registration and Licensure Process - #CanadaNurses
It is in public knowledge that registration and licensure for Internationally Educated Nurses IENs in Canada is a tedious and difficult process with several bottlenecks.
This has led some provinces to start rethinking the process and find a way to streamline it so that it becomes seamless for applicants. Also, to ensure that IENs in Canada can function to the full extent of their education and competencies.

On #StPatricksDay2023 I want to shout out to my compatriots from #Ireland producing some of the most incisive, compelling, and agenda-setting scholarship in global constitutional law today. Read them, follow them, connect with them.

A loooong (but very incomplete) thread 🧵
A few quick starting notes for a global audience.
I often think constitutional law research by Irish scholars is so rich because of our unique context, in a constitutional system that has one foot in colonialism and conflict, and one (today) in the rich Global North.
#Ireland's war of independence, civil war, 1922 Constitution, partition, and 1937 Constitution (still in force) sets our experience apart from the gradualist constitutional development of e.g. #Canada, #Australia, #NewZealand, but has commonalities with other states (e.g. India).

Hello and welcome to another thread on the illegal war being waged on #Ukraine.

We made it! Ukrainians made it!
The bombs started falling one year ago today, but almost the whole world has united to defend the country against the tyranny from #Russia.

Day 366 of the war
Loads of cities and famous places "lit-up" in support of #Ukraine last night, one year on from the first troops, tanks, planes and bombs from #Russia hitting the country.

I can only attach 4 pics, so here are Brussels, New York, Paris and Berlin.

40 years ago, giant entertainment companies embarked on a slow-moving act of arson.

My pandemic excess mortality estimate update, age standardised using 5, 7 and 8 year linear trend baselines.

#NewZealand and #Denmark the clear winners so far. #Sweden clearly establishing as next least in Europe anyway.


Data from @HMDatabase and @EU_Eurostat. ImageImageImage
#Sweden's infamous ~3% of deaths with unknown date sourced from @EU_Eurostat for all charts.

Adding those in more detail than before has the slightly paradoxical effect of reducing their excess by 20-25% as it makes their downward trend less steep.

1/18.📜NEW BLOG: We have seen quite a few pledges that have been framed as “finance for #LossAndDamage”. But are they really? This blog provides an overview of all the pledges thus far at #COP27 in chronological order.

🔗Read it here:… Image
2/18. On the 20th of September, #Denmark🇩🇰 pledged €13m for #LossAndDamage, a package which includes finance for the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk, support for CSOs to do projects on the ground, and some other money that is yet to be allocated for a specific use.
3/18. Crucially, all of this money is new and on top of #Denmark’s 🇩🇰 0.7% commitment to ODA, therefore not a diversion of cash from other vital #ClimateFinance projects.

1/16. Its day three at #COP27 and here is your #LossAndDamage focused daily thread. Today we saw several pledges of funding to address #LossAndDamage from developed countries and the start of negotiations on #LossAndDamage finance.
2/16. Before negotiations kicked off this morning @LicypriyaK made a powerful intervention at the @ResilienceFron1 pavilion in which she urged leaders to “give #ClimateFinance to the vulnerable countries who are affected by #ClimateChange to pay for #LossAndDmage”.
3/16. First up was continued negotiations on the operationalisation of the #SantiagoNetwork for #LossAndDamage during which parties continued to discuss the structure of #SantiagoNetwork including the potential for an advisory board, secretariat, focal points and network members.
