  • Human Rights in the Context of the Digital Society - Input to an Ongoing Discussion on Regulatory Issues

    It is widely recognized that ICT both affect and are affected by the socio- political environment into which it is introduced and functioning. Because of the neutrality of technology, ICT can act as a magnifier and multiplier of the inherent tendencies and characteristics of the spaces in which it is implemented and either support or undermine those values. ICT can be considered not only as a mean of exchanging and disseminating information but can also be a tool to enhance human rights. There is however always an important risk that inappropriate use of ICT could undermine those rights, disenfranchise particular socio-economic groups and attack the fundamental institutions of democracy. The aim of this paper is to discuss existing international regulatory mechanisms related to human rights in the context of the digital society. There are ongoing efforts to introduce new mechanisms to regulate the digital society, and this contribution seeks to highlight current strengths and limitations of existing international regulations governing human rights issues.

  • The role of international human rights law in the protection of online privacy in the age of surveillance

    Whilst the political dust on mass surveillance is slowly settling down, what has become apparent is the uncertainty regarding the interpretation and application of the right to privacy norms under Article 17 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights 1966 in the context of cyberspace. Despite the world-wide condemnation of these practices by, inter alia, the United Nations and international human rights organisations, little consensus has been reached on how to bring them in line with international human rights law. This paper proposes that the most pragmatic solution is updating Article 17 by replacing General Comment No.16. There are many issues that require attention. The paper focuses on two fundamental aspects of this process, namely the development of more detailed understanding of what is meant by the right to privacy in the 21st century, and the challenge posed by foreign cyber surveillance to the principle of extraterritorial application of human rights treaties. To that end, the paper identifies that the `effective control' test, developed by international human rights courts and bodies adopted to determine jurisdiction, is unsuitable in the context of state- sponsored cyber surveillance. The paper considers a number of suggestions made by legal scholars, which hinge on the control of communications, rather than the physical control over areas or individuals. Such a `virtual control' approach seems in line with the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, according to which extraterritorial obligations may arise when states exercise authority and control over an individual's human rights, despite not having physical control over that individual. The paper argues that the `virtual control' test, understood as a remote control over the individual's right to privacy of communications, may help to close the normative gap that state intelligence agencies keenly exploit at the moment.

  • Need to implement the Communication Technology Law and Policy to protect the human rights in Bangladesh: An approach for sustainble development

    Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated and least developed counties in the world. She has been suffering much due to poverty, mal administration, corruption, scarcity of natural resources, natural calamities etc.; but working with many initiatives for attaining the Millennium Development Goals by 2015 for Bangladesh. Consequently, the state of human rights to the people of Bangladesh is still very vulnerable compared to some other countries in the world. In order to protect these rights, meanwhile, the Government of Bangladesh has passed some important national and international laws and policies including the Right to Information Act, 2009; the National Human Rights Commission Act, 2008 etc. Some international legal foundations and efforts such as the Earth Summit Conference, Johannesburg Conference, Rio Declaration etc; have been been made in this regard. But due to some practical constraints and reasons in the administration such as lack of daily basis transparency and accountability, non coordination, corrupt mentality, lack of enforcement and implementation, insufficient technical and research knowledge, inadequate penal provision, bureaucratic mentality, ignorance of civil society's initiatives and opinions and over all weak judiciary etc., are responsible for it. But it is still hopeful that we implement the theory of the Digital Bangladesh applying the Information and Communication Technology Law and Policy, we could easily do justice to the people of Bangladesh. But we need to come back to the way of the prophet including the kahlifa Hazra Omar (R.). The study will provide an overview of the role of ICT Law and Policy safeguarding the human rights to the people of Bangladesh based on the primary and secondary sources consisting of at least 25 people in the different criteria such as the university lecturers and students from Bangladesh and abroad, local students, foreigners, common people, workers etc; in the Melaka City, Malaysia.

  • Matrix factorization for co-training algorithm to classify human rights abuses

    In the human rights domain, there is need to filter, efficiently classify and prioritize the types of violation endured by victims in order to provide the necessary rehabilitation and support. However, the domain is dominated by unstructured data either from victims' accounts, doctors'/professionals' reports or available on line. Manual classification still prevails in this domain which is extremely time consuming and slow. This is a problem for non- government operated charities. To this end we have explored the application of the co-training algorithm in order to improve the performance of a semi- supervised learning algorithm by incorporating large amounts of unlabeled data into the training data set. However, it remains challenging to apply co- training on the data without two independent and self sufficient views. This paper puts forth a method of randomly dividing the available features to apply matrix factorization so as to discover latent features underlying the interactions between different kinds of entities present in a single view dataset. These labeled views balance the biased information in the dataset, but still satisfy the co-training assumptions. Alongside, the views are constrained such that pairs of labeled views create weak classifiers which in turn increase the prediction accuracy when combined. In the majority of cases, any classification tries to connect a single class to each sample or object. However, in the human rights domain, a victim can be subjected to more than one type of violation or abuse. This is multi-label classification where a sample can be assigned to more than one class. This paper aims to address all these aspects by bringing together a semi supervised classification model that relies on the effectiveness of matrix collaborative filtering in order to classify stories narrated by victims into one or more types of human rights abuses. Experimental results demonstrate the efficiency of this approach when applied on real-world stories from different victims.

  • A software application to improve human rights watching activities and to prepare police stations to face the ISO 9001:2008 certification procedure

    This paper is about the conceptual design of the IT support for human rights watching, police transparency and police performance evaluation. Firstly we understand that human rights are rights that humans have by the fact of being human, and which are neither created nor can be abrogated by any governmental institution. These include cultural, economic, and political rights, such as right to life, liberty, education and equality before law, and right of association, belief, free speech, information, religion, movement, and nationality. Secondly, of course, we know that transparency means that something can be seen through. When we talk about transparency in police stations, we mean that citizens must be able to "see through" its workings. A police that is not transparent is more prone to corruption and undue influence because there is no public oversight of decision making. Thirdly we mention that individual performance evaluation is generally not well developed in police departments. The most common practice consists of an annual or semiannual subjective rating form filled out by police supervisors, where persons are rated with respect to global categories such as initiative and appearance. Many departments make no effort to assess performance at all. The self-protectiveness of the police subculture and the fact that little concrete depends on the evaluations mean that many departments have abandoned them, or they have become empty rituals, where almost everyone's performance is rated as satisfactory. This paper presents an environment that facilities police performance evaluation. From a Software Engineering point of view, this paper reports a very specific and innovative software development project oriented both to support human right watching activities, to improve police transparency, to evaluate police performance and to prepare police stations for ISO 9001:2008 certification.

  • Notice of Retraction<br>Comments on protection of human rights in Emergency Response Law

    Emergencies are conflicts between emergency power and emergency power nullification under abnormal state. To properly balance interest boundary between them is the key to legislation. Limitations on human rights in emergencies are means but not the objective; and protection of human rights is the logic precondition and ultimate objective of legislation. The Emergency Response Law establishes human right concept, proportional principle, rule of law, principle of protection of human rights, but lacks principle of minimum standards, principle of constitution reservation and right-relief principle, which shall be legislated and improved.

  • A Requirement Analysis for Privacy Preserving Biometrics in View of Universal Human Rights and Data Protection Regulation

    Data Protection (DP) and Universal Human Rights are extremely relevant to biometrics, where inherently private data is used for authentication purposes. In this context this paper stresses that there are significant challenges beyond biometric authentication. For example, it has been shown in the existing literature that medical information of a skin disease from a fingerprint, symptoms of diabetes on the retina, or diseases affecting one's walk can be extracted from biometric recordings. We address the derived privacy challenges in biometrics by a careful review of relevant aspects of the universal human rights from UN documents and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with a first identification and enumeration of relevant attributes. From the derived privacy sensitive attributes and respective requirements, de-identification approaches to protection of soft biometrics in face and fingerprints are explored. In consideration of these techniques, there is the question of what constitutes legal and moral biometric signal processing presently in the state-of-the-art, as well as motivation for further work towards fulfilling the criteria.
