Introduction
[MUSIC] Module 2, Theories and Concepts underpinning ISW. This week the focus is on the meaning of globalization, development and human rights as the underpinnings of ISW relative to addressing cross cultural and global social work practice. Globalization is defined in terms of interdependence and how it impacts issues that are crisis. The discussion highlights interdependence on globalization and human trafficking. Well, development often involves sociopolitical economic change at the macro and mezzo levels of practice. The social developmental casework model of practice is introduced as a means of illustrating how micro level practice can be included as a component of development. Human rights issues are involved in considering the impact of globalization and the outcomes of social development. It is important to appreciate how social work, social development and human rights are linked in an ISW framework. Enjoy the readings assigned for the week and participate in the discussion, and pay close attention to journal articles for reference in the written assignment. The optional reading on globalization is a good reading as well. [MUSIC]

Module 2: Privacy and Human Rights and International Social Work
Table of Contents
Introduction
The purpose of this lesson is to explore privacy as a human rights issue. The first objective is to introduce privacy as a human right in contemporary societies. Another objective is to examine privacy, digital society, and international/transnational surveillance. A third objective is to present examples of the threats to privacy as a human right. The last objective is to summarize how the content is relevant to international and transnational social work.
Privacy as A Human Right in Contemporary Society
Clearly, if one is in tune with the news, one is aware of issues related to privacy. In particular, Edward Snowden made the public aware of the project implemented by the United States government to collect massive amounts of data on its citizens (Milanovic, XXXXXXXXXXIn taking on the role of whistleblower, Snowden revealed how the United States and its partners, i.e. United Kingdom, were collecting data on foreign leaders and governments. For this, Snowden has been labeled a "traitor" and exiled to Russia with no chance currently of returning to the United States without being tried for treason. This brings into question the extent to which there is a need for individuals to advocate for privacy as a human right.
Floridi XXXXXXXXXXmade the point that privacy is about human dignity and the right of individuals to protect their information. Specifically, privacy allows for one to be the director of one's journey and one's narrative. With this in mind, Floridi also made the case that while much of who we are is known to others, it is important for us to preserve and protect what is left of our identity and personal narrative. In the digital age, it seems that individuals relinquish privacy without perceiving privacy as a human right. Likewise, Roessler XXXXXXXXXXposited that one has a general right to privacy, which is the source of one's human right to freedom and autonomy.
Privacy, the Digital Society, and International/Transnational Surveillance
In the context of the digital age, privacy is an antecedent to a citizen having numerous freedoms, specifically the freedom to speak freely without fear of discrimination or ridicule based on one's characteristics (Buttarelli, XXXXXXXXXXAs a result of participating in the digital society, individuals unfortunately surrender a considerable amount of information to nation States and/or corporations without knowing they are doing so. In the latter case, the chief executive officers (CEOs) of companies, such as Facebook, Amazon, and Google, have access to data that allows them to monitor speech.
Bignami and Resta (in press) address individual privacy in the context of surveillance between the United States and European Union (EU). These researchers noted that the United States tends to be more conscientious about the privacy of citizens and permanent residents than others. The EU has the prerogative to monitor the access of foreign countries to the personal data of EU persons. While the US and EU generally agree about the right to privacy, the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) has the legal responsibility to protect individuals from agencies spying on them when the act of spying can be substantiated.
An international/transnational privacy issue can be seen in the competition between Chinese Huawei phones and phones sold in the United States. Huawei Technologies Company is a Chinese multinational company run by a former leader of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. It is common knowledge that many in the technology community are concerned that the Chinese government is collaborating with Huawei to collect as much data from persons in a variety of countries, such as Africa, primarily for the purpose of creating prototypes for artificial intelligence (AI, Lee, XXXXXXXXXXThe technology in Huawei phones allows the company/Chinese government to collect a vast amount of data from persons in many countries in order to develop prototypes of behavior. The problem is that most users have no knowledge or understanding of their right to privacy.

Summary
From the perspective of many experts, privacy is a human right. More important, privacy is about human dignity and the right of individuals to protect their autonomy, which is consistent with the values of international social work. Of particular importance is the reality that privacy is threatened across the world in the digital society in which we live, particularly with regard to surveillance by States and ex-officio CEOs of network sites. Within the context that surveillance without the knowledge of those being surveilled is perceived as a violation of privacy and a violation of human rights, there seems to be an important advocacy role for social workers in the international and transnational arenas.
Beyond surveillance, there are additional concerns when one perceives privacy as a human right. Biometrics can be a privacy concern if individuals are selected out of access to health care based on a characteristic, such as age or gender. For example, it is common that in order for universal health to work, it will require the rationing of services, and those most impacted by rationing will be elderly populations.
Second, in most instances, the general belief is that decisions about reproduction should be private. However, in providing privacy in the decision-making process, there is the possibility of exploitation. For example, it is not atypical in the case of commercial surrogacy in the United States for affluent persons to use money and power to entice poor, uneducated women to act as surrogates who may not completely understand the process. In addition to possibility of exploiting surrogates, the welfare and rights of children born as a result of surrogacy warrant much more attention.
Last, the privacy of deceased persons was of little concern prior to the advent of the digital society. However, the private data of deceased persons that remains on network sites can be considered within the context of the harvesting and sale of the HeLa cells in the case of Henrietta Lacks. This analogy brings into question the sale of data of deceased persons in international arenas when ex officio CEOs are in the position to make decisions about those data. While it is conceivable that the data can be used in some way for scientific good as was the case with the HeLa cells, the privacy of Henrietta Lacks was violated postmortem.
