This essay will consider how the law in the United Kingdom has to find a balance between competing human rights. It will firstly provide an overview of Human Rights outlining the progression through the years of the Human Rights ideology before moving to look specifically at the law on privacy and family discipline and the issues faced by the courts in balancing the different Human Rights.
The term Human Rights refers to the basic rights of all individuals irrespective of nationality, race, religion, ethnicity or gender and can be considered moral rights. Moral rights are natural rights that exist from birth which are applicable to everyone and universal irrespective of which society they

provisions for protection of privacy rights.
The U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights and the Hawaii State Constitution’s Bill of rights are similar in their approach to outlining citizen’s protected rights. Like the U.S. Bill of Rights, Hawaiians are specifically guaranteed freedom of religion, speech, assembly, and petition. For example, in article 1.4 of the Hawaiian Bill of Rights, “No law shall be enacted respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” This is reflective of the article three of the

represent hence an important resource for police in their investigations by storing DNA profiles. Despite its
usefulness, it is a very controversial area due to its interference with rights of individuals especially privacy rights
because of the individuals informations contained in DNA. This retention of personal data arise a new form of privacy,
the genetic privacy. Privacy is a major principle of human rights of individuals and a wide notion highly protected by
the European Court of Human Rights. Further, as ECtHR held in the case

The video conveys the message behind the dilemma well because it is a news source describing what was happening between Apple and the FBI. It does not describe exactly the details behind the dispute, but it does cover the basics, such as privacy concerns and why the FBI thinks they can force Apple to open the iPhone. CNN is a credible source in my opinion, at least when it comes to non-partisan topics, just like Fox or MSNBC. It backs Apple up with its quote that “implications go far beyond the case at hand.” CNN, just as I do, believes that people deserve their rights to privacy, and that the federal government should never force a private company to exploit its own product.

issues. A strong, professional and independent judiciary that upholds the rule of law is an important part of a free and democratic society but the judiciary is not the best placed institution to determine policy and essentially, a Bill Of Rights would politicise the courts.Identifying universal rights and balancing them against the rights of the individual is always a complex task. For example, the recent "Anti-terrorism" laws have received much clamour in the public. Some members of the public have suggested that these "Anti-terrorism" laws are an invasion of privacy. However, many members have also advocated that these laws are a must for Australia in lite of the recent "War on Terrorism

productive and affective workplace, and at the same time protect our rights to privacy? The companies have a moral right to give these drug tests with the same right anyone should have for any rules or regulations. First of all, if people have a problem with the drug testing then they have a problem already, because if they refuse or are reluctant to take the test then you assume that they are hiding something and in fact are a drug addict. Second, if they don?t want to take the drug testing, let them get another job. It is all part of the job, like showing up on time, or doing your duties. You are getting paid for the job that you are doing, and the drug tests are a requirement just as any

Still, not all of these actions of the government are perfectly justified. Certainly our
founding fathers would not consent to these actions. Thomas Jefferson would affirm that every
person is entitled to liberty, despite what laws might say. In the quote I prefaced the essay with,
Benjamin Franklin references the idea of an “essential liberty”. I interpret that expression as one
of inalienable rights, like that of the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, privacy, due process
of law, and equality before the law.
However, the government perceives some liberties as more essential than

This cartoon shows how cyberbullying is beginning to show emotionally abuse of those who have been exposed to cyberbullying. As a result of this emotional abuse, it has been an unavoidable disruption in many school environments.
Lastly, school’s have responsibilities to protect their students right’s as well as their well being. In order to do both, they must address the cyberbullying problem.

Equal Protection and Due Process
The Constitution of the United States grants the same rights of life, liberty and property twice in two separate amendments. The Fifth Amendment states the Federal Government that no one shall be “deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of the law.” The Fourteenth Amendment repeats the same words but it is called the Equal Protection Clause as the States obligation to carry out the same rights. States cannot deny anyone the equal protection of the law. How can something so important that it needs mentioning twice be so different and interpreted different among members of

criminals at all cost. The court concluded that protecting innocent people's rights is far more important than convicting criminals. In 1949, the Court ruled in Wolf vs. Colorado, claiming that the due process clause of the fourteenth amendment did not incorporate the 9th and 10th amendments. This suggested that due process did not protect non-specified rights nor was it permanently defined within the states. Therefore, according to this case, the state of Ohio was completely justified in convicting Mapp for her possession of pornography. Since privacy and security is not one of our basic, listed rights, due process does not have to apply to protecting these rights. Also, certainly since due

adequate health and education are threatened. The collapse of economic infrastructure often results in pollution, food shortages, and overall poverty. These various forms of economic breakdown and oppression violate rights to self-determination and often contribute to further human tragedy in the form of sickness, starvation, and lack of basic shelter. The breakdown of government institutions results in denials of civil rights, including the rights to privacy, fair trial, and freedom of movement. In many cases, the government is increasingly militarized, and police and judicial systems are corrupted. Abductions, arbitrary arrests, detentions without trial, political executions, assassinations

Students' Rights and Teachers' Responsibilities ScenarioThe School Board is the exclusive owner of any public school building and any desk or locker utilized by any student contained therein or any other area that may be set aside for the personal use of the students. Any teacher, principal, administrator, or school security guard employed by the school board, having a reasonable belief that the public school building, desk, locker, area or grounds contain any weapons, illegal drugs, alcoholic beverages, nitrate based inhalants, stolen goods, or other items, the school reserves the right to search the students locker (Mczeal, 2004). Students have the right to protection from unlawful

cost? They take away part of the freedoms people have always had. For instance, surveillance
cameras put up on residential streets have the capability to view citizens on their private
property, which in turn takes away their right to privacy. These cameras may be for use of safety
within those neighborhoods, but the trade-off are the rights of everyday citizens in order to do so.
1984 provides an inside view of how surveillance technology can become a threat to
citizens and a tool to the government in order to maintain power. As of right now, these
resources are primarily being used by online advertisers and government officials. However, this
