NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND PROTECTION OF FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS
4 CFU al 1° anno di 8772 AMMINISTRAZIONE E POLITICHE PUBBLICHE (LM-63) GENOVA
The course analyses the relationship between new technologies and fundamental rights. New technologies have changed not only the way people interact, but also the potential of individual expression. From the point of view of individual freedoms, this leads to two different types of problems. On the one hand, the need to protect the individual from the intrusion of others is potentially undermined; on the other hand, the concrete possibilities of individual interaction require the availability of an increasingly wide range of technological services, managed by private entities (online platforms, social networking services and so on...). The course therefore focuses on the main fundamental freedoms, protected by the constitutions of the Western legal tradition, and investigates this dual correlation that freedoms have with the tools offered by new technologies, focusing on the legal institutions aimed at addressing the problems arising from this correlation. Particular attention will also be paid to problems arising from the conflict between fundamental rights (e.g. freedom of the press and privacy) and the methods used in different legal systems to resolve this conflict.
