But surveillance in the name of security is often how other fundamental rights such as freedom of expression, privacy, and freedom of assembly are invaded.  It is important to assert the importance of human rights globally in a document like this, so that all rights are referenced.  Given that there is a lot of detail, from trade in beef to cooperation in firefighting, I think it is a bit disappointing that the Marco Civile and other human rights issues were not underscored.
