The right to be forgotten is often assumed to infringe upon the freedom of expression. As far as its interpretation goes, the courts have been subjective and often inconsistent in their decision making. The Google Spain case (2014) is touted as one reason why the tiff between the two rights intensified. Chandreyee Maitra analyses the Google Spain case, explaining why it created tension between freedom of expression and the right to be forgotten in the first place. Maitra shows how the Google Spain case affected European jurisprudence vis-a-vis the right to be forgotten.
International financial Institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are facing varied economical, financial, political, social and environmental issues today. Their role with regards to the administration of global distributive justice, minimising poverty or aiding in the developmental processes is being called into question. In this paper, the author has tried to expose the internal working procedure of these institutions and the effects of their policies which have been debated vigorously as skepticism looms large in the wake of a worsening economic situation and living standards especially in the Developing and Least Developed countries.
Terrorist threats have existed throughout modern history, and the importance of deterring and preventing terrorist acts is of central importance. The impulse to abandon human rights norms in times of fear and crisis is short-sighted and self-defeating. As the revelations of shocking abuses at Abu Gharib prison have demonstrated, the world will not easily accept inhumane treatment in any context, and such treatment will tarnish and undermine even legitimate security operations. Therefore, this is an issue which requires in-depth analysis, as done by the author, due to its complex and multidimensional nature.
