Legal measures to prevent and counter violent extremism and radicalism globally

In current years, there have been many new waves of violent extremism, based on religious, ethnic and political ideologies. This has resulted in the death of many innocent people and has been a challenge in many contemporary societies. It poses the issue of the rise of extreme extremism and for its spread more globally across borders. Thus legal intervention is required to counter this rise of extremism and radical behavior, to try and foster inclusive and tolerant societies.

Legal measures to protect online personal data from private corporations

Currently, in today's Digital Era, data is a very powerful source of information, which is collected every day. Data is extremely important for corporate businesses as it provides them with important information to directly target their customers. This data collection ranges from a questionnaire or survey filled out, to just viewing someone's instagram story. However, data collection methods have radically improved, causing data collection methods to be manipulated and used to garner more profits. This has resulted in the exploitation of one's personal data and breaking online users' right of privacy. Thus it is extremely important to put legal measures in place to protect the privacy of users data online.

The question of creating a framework for international intervention

The boundaries of International Intervention have been long discussed in the UN to ensure that it is set out in a proper, effective and safe manner. However, many times international intervention has been deemed as a failure, with one major example being the Rwandan Genocide. There is a continuing conflicting debate on the extent of intervention and when it can occur. Based on the “Responsibility to Protect” commitment that was endorsed by all member states of the UN, a country has an obligation to protect their citizens from genocide, ethnic cleansing, war crimes and crimes against humanity. The rights and sovereignty which they are allowed are dependent upon the fulfillment of this obligation.
