Digital technologies raise many legal issues for the protection of human rights. In this module you will learn how international human rights law responds to these legal issues. You will acquire and deepen your understanding of the rights to privacy, data protection, freedom of expression, non-discrimination and due process in the digital age. You will have the opportunity to critically think about how the law should evolve to better regulate these technologies. Knowledge of this area of law is a strong and desirable asset for students wishing to pursue a career in the private and public sectors alike.
