The world is changing rapidly. As technology, society, and global politics shift, so does the conversation on human rights.
International Human Rights Law, once a beacon of hope for nations, now plays an integral role in global decision-making.
In this blog post, we explore the latest trends in international human rights.
To dive deeper, consider an LLM International Business Law course to expand your knowledge of international trade law.
1. Tech and Rights
With the rise of technology, concerns about privacy, surveillance, and cyber warfare are at the forefront. There's a growing focus on protecting rights in the digital age. This means laws regarding data protection, cyber crimes, and online freedoms continually evolve.
2. Rights of Migrants and Refugees
With global displacement at an all-time high, the rights of migrants and refugees have become central to international discussions. There's a call to ensure safe passage, dignified treatment, and proper integration of these vulnerable populations.
3. LGBTQ+ Rights
While there have been significant advancements in LGBTQ+ rights in some regions, many countries still have discriminatory laws. There's a global push for decriminalisation and equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
4. Corporate Accountability
In an era of globalisation, multinational companies have immense power. This has prompted stronger regulations to ensure companies uphold human rights, both in their primary operations and supply chains. Our LLM International Business Law course gives you a great starting point if this is a part of the law you can see yourself working in.
5. Climate Justice
As climate change worsens, the connection between the environment and human rights becomes more apparent. There's a push to recognise the right to a clean environment and to hold companies and governments accountable for environmental degradation.
