In defence of Helsinki and human rights
A Plomer
South African Journal of Bioethics and Law , 2012,
Abstract: The Declaration of Helsinki (DoH) is widely recognised as the leading authoritative source on ethical standards of medical research worldwide. Yet, in the past decade, different sources have questioned the authority of the DoH and its compliance with human rights, and argued for its replacement with UNESCO’s Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights . This paper argues that the tensions and alleged conflicts between Helsinki and human rights instruments are overstated, and that the latest version of the DoH is an important complement to human rights instruments in protecting the rights of disadvantaged populations and participants in biomedical research.

Human Rights and American Traditions  [PDF]
Alexandru Boboc-Cojocaru
International Journal of Social Science and Humanity , 2013, DOI: 10.7763/ijssh.2013.v3.226
Abstract: Since the beginning, the United States has recognized and respected the rights of individuals. Besides serving as custodian of a rich historical and political tradition on human rights, the United States has contributed greatly to the crystallization of International human rights legislation through the establishment of the United Nations Organization and the development of the United Nations Charter. From my perspective, the real dilemma faced by the United States has included so far the issue of solving specific problems related to human rights, the way in which human rights considerations combine with other factors of foreign policy and the way of creating a sustainable public consensus in support of their policy on the realm of human rights. In my opinion it is unlikely that these efforts should ever be entirely solved successfully. That’s why, in this paper, I try to analyze the correlation between moral and pragmatic components of the U.S. policy on human rights in the last 40 years.

Golden Research Thoughts , 2012, DOI: 10.9780/22315063
Abstract: Human rights and patent rights are, to a large extent, fields of law that have evolved independently. On the one hand, patent rights consist of statutorily recognized rights, which provide incentives for the participation of the private sector in certain fields and seek to contribute to technological development. Patents are near monopoly rights. This monopoly is offered by society in return for certain concessions such as information disclosure and a limited duration of the rights granted. On the other hand, human rights are fundamental rights, which are recognized by the state but are inherent rights linked to human dignity. Different kinds of links between patent rights and human rights can be identified.
Human rights violation: Responsibility of international organizations or of their member states  [PDF]
Stoj?i? Jelena
Medjunarodni Problemi , 2012, DOI: 10.2298/medjp1204507s
Abstract: Although international organizations as subjects of international law are obliged to respect fundamental human rights in their acting, a very small number of them are contracting parties to international instruments for human rights protection, unlike their member states, which are contracting parties to many of them. As international organizations take more and more activities that can and often result in violation of human rights there is an obvious problem to what forum victims of those violations can turn to for determining responsibility of the international organization. The European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice have developed through their practices modalities for indirect control of acts of international organizations by controlling the acts of their member states, which result from their duties as members of those organizations. The paper assumes that such control is efficient and that it fills the void in the international system of determining responsibility for violation of human rights through acts of international organizations according to which, the states basically keep on being responsible for violation of human rights.
Dignity, Human Rights, and Democracy  [PDF]
Ernesto Garzon Valdes
Rationality, Markets and Morals , 2009,
Abstract: In order to analyze what can plausibly be said about the relationship between dignity, human rights, and democracy, I will propose a basic assumption about human dignity (I) and then formulate five theses concerning the justification of democracy (II) which will allow me to conclude (III) that only when human rights are constitutionally established and effectively implemented democracy can be theoretically and practically justified as a political means to guarantee human dignity.
