Le Conseil international sur les politiques
des droits humains vient de publier l'embauche de son rapport sur
contrôle sociale et droits de l'homme, disponible en anglais sur http://www.ichrp.org/files/drafts/11/126_draft.pdf
The International Council on Human Rights Policy is pleased to share with you the draft report a href="http://www.ichrp.org/files/drafts/11/126_draft.pdf" style="color: rgb(0, 0, 204);" target="_blank">http://www.ichrp.org/files/drafts/11/126_draft.pdf> of its project on social control and human rights. The Widening Web of Control emerges from a multidisciplinary project involving research in
five different policy areas: public health/infectious diseases control;
the city and urban poor; punishment and incarceration; policing and
surveillance; controls over migrant and non-citizens. In addition, a
case study of the Roma in Europe was also undertaken.
The report examines the human rights implications of the
steady expansion of the power of public authorities and private
entities to exercise control and restrict freedoms through social
policy. Highlighting the challenges facing human rights advocates,
it identifies key areas in which human rights theory and practice
may need reorientation to respond effectively to the
contemporary landscape of control and its human rights consequences.
The draft report is also available on the Council’s website along with final drafts of the underlying research papers
a href="http://www.ichrp.org/en/zoom-in/new_draft_social_control_and_human_rights" style="color: rgb(0, 0, 204);" target="_blank">http://www.ichrp.org/en/zoom-in/new_draft_social_control_and_human_...>
(the latter for reference only). The final printed version of
the report will also have the complete versions of all the research
papers on a companion CD.
We will greatly appreciate comments and feedback on this draft by the 22nd of March. Please send in your comments to nagaraj [at] ichrp.org
