Book On Human Rights Versus Digital Rights- The Impact of Digital Technology

Juris Cognita Publications is accepting submissions for a Call for Chapters for a Book on Human Rights Versus Digital Rights: The Impact of Digital Technology

BOOK SUMMARY

Digital technology is transforming the practice of fundamental rights like freedom of expression and access to information, while also introducing new rights. As society embraces the digital age, laws are being developed to protect and ensure fair and open access to online information. Digital rights extend the principles established in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to include the internet. Their goal is to ensure that everyone has access to the internet and promote responsible internet usage as a shared resource. Technological advancements are constantly evolving, and every improvement necessitates the development of a fresh set of regulations. With the growing number of limitations, it becomes crucial to establish digital ethics to address potential human rights violations. However, because there is no global agreement on digital rights, countries are creating their own digital rights charters.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The book explores the profound impact of digital technology on human rights in the digital era. This book delves into the ethical and legal challenges arising from the rapid advancement of technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, and the internet of things, and their implications for digital human rights. Through a multidisciplinary approach, it examines how these technologies can both enhance and threaten human dignity, offering insights into how societies can navigate this complex intersection to ensure that technological progress is aligned with human values and dignity. This book is essential reading for policymakers, legal scholars, technologists, and anyone interested in the future of technology and its impact on humanity.
