Description

One of the fundamental guidelines of the Lisbon Strategy in the year 2000 is building in Europe a society based on knowledge and information. These are two basic instruments for global society and the determinants of progress. There is no doubt that the accepted assumptions have contributed to the development of the whole Eupean Union and its particular national groups. The development of science and more and more modern methods of transportation and exploitation of information not only provide profits on a global scale but also generate various dangers for individuals and their laws. The practically unlimited possibility of using and transforming personal data very often violates or significantly limits human rights. Also the development of science, especially of new technologies, gives rise to questions about the limits of freedom of scientific research.

The human's legal status and their rights will be covered during the 8th International Conference of Human Rights titled Right to knowledge and information in a heterogenic society. This conference is of an interdisciplinary character, therefore the raised issues may be discussed by lawyers, economists, philosophers, theologists, demographers, doctors, computer scientists and by many others who dedicate themselves to various scientific disciplines. The Conference is organized by the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn.
