Conference Overview

Human rights are universal and inalienable; indivisible; interdependent and interrelated. In the year when the European convention on human rights celebrates 70 years since its signing in November, 1950 in Rome, unfortunately despite the development and modern evolution in every aspect of social life, we have to be constantly reminded of equality and the connection of human rights with all human beings, regardless of their individual characteristics. Today, human rights are a category which is the aim of constant restriction, disrespect, negation, non-recognition. To what extent is a human being ready to respect the benefits of his evolution? Are human rights often just words on paper, and their guarantees only obligations that states and other entities manage to bypass?

At the same time, organized crime is one of the "benefits" of human development, primarily of the technical and technological evolution. The positive effects of the changes on daily life through open borders, the free flow of people and goods, organized crime groups have skillfully turned into relief for their illicit activities. On the other hand, some criminal groups use the inclusion of public office holders in their ranks; have embedded themselves in the social structure which prevents radical change for the better. Are states capable of countering human greed that enables organized crime to smoothly destroy the hope for social change? To what extent do certain societies have an interest in breaking the links between organized crime groups and the state structure? And are there sometimes two different sides of the same coin?

Modern society is associated with the constant flow and acceptance of information and communication technologies at home, in the workplace, in the process of education, even in recreational activities. By facilitating a relieve for day-to-day responsibilities, but also their significant acceleration and achieving better quality, digitalization has enabled easier control of human rights protection, better information on their existence and guarantees, and the opportunities for assistance in situations of non-compliance; but also its increased use in their denial and disrespect. In addition, digitalization has enabled the emergence of new criminal activities, hybrid criminal entities, facilitating better access to information from organized crime groups, the way of communication, discovering new ways of committing crimes, as well as opportunities to avoid detection by the police and prosecution. Is the existence of digital society more positive than negative about many aspects of human existence and how has digitalization changed the image of the world? How long can a person survive without the help of his digital assistants?

As a result of the challenge of COVID19, the Faculty of Law, University “St. KlimentOhridski” – Bitola, has decided to expand the topic of the International Scientific Conference: “TOWARDS A BETTER FUTURE: HUMAN RIGHTS, ORGANIZED CRIME AND DIGITAL SOCIETY” (October 02 - 03, 2020 / Bitola, Republic of North Macedonia) with a special section dedicated to: "HUMAN RIGHTS, IDEOLOGY AND COVID19".
The inspiration for this section came from the initiation of the pandemic with COVID19, which as a problem deep down includes brutal human rights abuses, mistrust of citizens and the prevention of any attempts to cast doubt on official state ideology. It all begins with the censorship by Chinese authorities of Li Wenliang, the doctor who first discovered the ongoing coronavirus epidemic. The death of the whistleblower Chinese doctor Li Wenliang has aroused strong emotions across China.
The Chinese government has tried to tackle the epidemic by brutally violating one of the basic human rights - freedom of speech - in order to protect the sanctity and infallibility of the ruling party and official state ideology, without taking into account the fact that it has allowed the rise of the ideology of lies, manipulation, and authoritarianism that threaten the world today, in parallel with the biological consequences of the coronaviruspandemic. Unfortunately, China does not appear to have learned lessons from the SARS epidemic. Despite the flourishing of social media, information is more tightly controlled in China than ever. In 2013, an internal Communist party edict known as Document No 9. ordered cadres to tackle seven supposedly subversive influences on society. These included western-inspired notions of press freedom, “universal values” of human rights, civil rights and civic participation. Even within the Communist party, cadres are threatened with disciplinary action for expressing opinions that differ from the leadership.
The predictable reaction to how the Chinese state has dealt with the epidemic is best rendered by Hong Kong-based journalist Verna Yu’s comment, “If China valued free speech, there would be no coronavirus crisis. Unless Chinese citizens’ freedom of speech and other basic rights are respected, such crises will only happen again (…) Human rights in China may appear to have little to do with the rest of the world but as we have seen in this crisis, disaster could occur when China thwarts the freedoms of its citizens. Surely it is time the international community takes this issue more seriously.”
