1. Slotte, Pamela.

Abstract: In my paper I give an account for my own position as a theologian as far as contemporary human rights and human rights law is concerned. In the account for my understanding of human rights, I will, to a large extent, fall back on late modern writings in theology, philosophy and law. It will primarily be a conceptual analysis which is offered. The topic is approach as a study of language, moral and legal (and religious).
Apart from this, the analysis in the paper will include a self assessment of the own role as a researcher of theological ethics crossing so-called traditional disciplinary borders. As much of the research carried out on human rights is representative of the legal disciplines, how can – and how have – a theologian ethicist entered that predominantly legal discourse? Where does theology come in? What can be gained from the additional perspective on law, man and life? Or is it maybe even the case that human rights can be viewed as a life view to a certain extent – making it the “natural” research object for theology?

Abstract: This work intends to expand our view of economic growth and HR development by shifting the scope from economic policies onto MNCs as significant non-State actors in carrying out the process of economic globalization. On the one hand, I argue that Amartya Sen’s and Martha Nussbaum’s theory of capabilities constitutes an outstanding theoretical fundament for human rights (HR), as it is entailed in Human Development Report of United Nations (2000). Since HR encompass the best approach so far to a cross-culturally common framework for human development, they are potentially open to being reinterpreted as human capabilities. On the other hand, the capabilities approach is taken as a useful tool for measuring HR development at the meso-level of international corporations. Multinational corporations (MNCs) performance in fostering (or harming) HR can be best tracked by means of capabilities operationalization in a way that allows their recognition in business operations. The contribution of this work lies in bringing the capabilities approach from its natural locus at the macro-level of economic policies down to the meso-level of business management; and in giving rise to a ‘checklist’ that MNCs can use and incorporate into their Codes of Conduct to make sure they are promoting HR.

Abstract: Drawing upon the CASA paradigm, the present study aims to explain and predict how artificial intelligence(AI) technologies will affect human communication behavior. With a focus on human-chatbot interaction, the present study examined a) the effects of chatbot use on humanness perception toward chatbot, b) the effects of humanness perception on continuous use intention, c) the mediation process by which chatbot use indirectly affects continuous use intention through humanness perception, and d) the moderating effect of sense of belonging on the mediation process. An online survey was conducted in South Korea (N = 645). Our findings suggest that artificial intelligence agents such as chatbots will be perceived and treated as human beings. And such perception will lead individuals to interact with the agents more frequently and continuously. Those artificial agents even might become complementary to or substitute for traditional interpersonal interaction. Specifically, individuals with poor social relations may be most likely to appreciate the artificial companion.

Abstract: The exuberant establishment of national human rights institutions (NHRIs) during the past fifteen years sees NHRIs as increasingly important and engaged actors in the international human rights system. NHRIs are frequently upheld as a key component of successful national-level implementation of human rights conventions. Representatives of NHRIs are increasingly engaged as actors in their own right at international human rights convention negotiations, in some instances adopting common positions and forming their own lobbying bloc to assert, among other things, the role that NHRIs should play in national-level monitoring and implementation. Notwithstanding the heightened expectations for NHRIs in boosting national-level implementation of human rights norms, there is surprisingly little in the literature examining these new actors and whether and how they might effectively take on the role as a major force in human rights treaty implementation. This paper examines the role of NHRIs in recent international human rights treaty negotiations and analyzes the prospects for their effective engagement in national level implementation of human rights norms. In so doing, the paper presents a case study of three NHRIs engaged in implementing international human rights standards concerning vulnerable groups.

Abstract: The right to development is defined by a human right as per the Declaration on the Right to Development (1986). Concomitant with the declaration of development as a specific right has been the rights based approach to development. This is a conceptual framework for the process of human development based on international human rights standards and directed to promoting and protecting human rights. Education is a cornerstone of the rights based approach to development. In this paper we examine the role of education as a specific human right, its importance in human development, and its integral role in promoting human capabilities and freedoms. As a starting point, we use Amartya Sen’s view that human rights share a common motivation with human development and capabilities. The human capability approach can inform and lead the discussion on the educational content, standards, and context that are necessary to promote development. Some of the issues we cover include the importance of public education in the human capability approach, the challenge of enforcing the right to education, the recognition of education as essential in the exercise of all human rights, and the mutual support between education and the human capability approach to development.
