History and overview

Human rights abuses are a diverse concept. Historically,中 世からModern OfAbsoluteismUnder the power of the state such as the kingGovernanceIndividual (by control)human rightsThere is a history that the texts have been established with the purpose of not accepting the restrictions of. As the oldest enacted sentence,The United Kingdom(England)ofMagna Carta[2](1215). Furthermore, in the United Kingdom,17st century OfCivil revolutionAfter,Petition for rights,Bill of RightsAnd the like is provided,kingArbitrary byTaxationOr unfairArrestEfforts have been made to eliminate such "human rights violations". As a representative thinker who became that theoretical pillar,Hobbs,LockIs raised. The culmination of these ideasFrance OfRousseauIt is,French Revolution(1789-1799)Japan OfMeiji Era OfFreedom Civil Rights Movement(1874-1883) also had a great influence.[3]

But,中 世-ModernThe concept of human rights violations up toCapitalistclass(BourgeoisieA) Infringement of private property (arbitrary taxation, etc.) and liberty, that is, infringement of liberty (involuntary arrest by the king, etc.) And under such a concept of human rights, laissez-faire (Lesse FehrAs a result, the social and economic hierarchy and class culture have advanced, and the lives of individuals in the lower classes have deteriorated significantly. From this reflection,World War IAfterGermanyEstablished byWeimar Constitution(German Constitution, 1919) for the first time as a basic human rightRight to lifeSuch asSocial rightsGuarantee was stipulated.

However, in JapanSupreme CourtThere are very few examples of cases in which the use of public power by state power, etc. was judged unconstitutional (Unconstitutional examination standards,Obvious and present dangerSee). From this, it can be said that Japan's judiciary, in principle, takes a judicial negative attitude and emphasizes the modesty of the judiciary.

Recently,Right to control personal informationFrom the rise of new human rights awareness such asPoliciesThere has also been a view that it is “human rights violation” that the personal information belonging to the government is owned by an administrative agency without proper purpose or is not managed properly. In response to this,Law Concerning Protection of Personal Information Held by Administrative OrgansHas been established, sloppy management of personal information has come to be seen as a violation of human rights (or an illegal act).

Human rights violations as a human

"Human rights violations" and "human rights violations" used in a general sense often refer to this problem.

Constitutional provisions are in place to protect the activities of private individuals from the interference of state power. And in general, with regard to personal relationships, we eliminated interference by the statePrinciples of private autonomyIt has been entrusted to (free-living). However, as a result, even private individuals have different relationships (eg,CompanyWorker-consumerAndprivate schoolStudentEtc.) has occurred. Due to such a rule-dependent relationship between the socially and economically strong and weak,Social rights,Labor right,Right to lifeNew human rights such asSecond World WarIt was also established in detail in the Constitution of Japan that was enacted later.

However, the provisions of the Constitution of Japan are generallyAbstract right"Or"Program rulesIt is believed that it is, and it is not a general view that the constitutional provisions are regarded as concrete rights.

In this way, the problem of "human rights violations" in personal life isEqual rights(Article 14 of the Constitution of Japan) AndRight to pursue happiness(Article 13), etc., there are conflicting views.[6].. Details are given in each item and technical books.

Human rights violations on an equal basis

"Human rights violations" do not directly pose a problem among equal peers. This is because each private person is a person who enjoys human rights independently. Whether or not such an equal person has so-called "human rights violations", that is, whether or not there is an illegality in the legal sense in consideration of the purpose of the constitution, is the interpretation and application of the specific general provisions of the law. Under the specific circumstances between the two parties, it will be judged by comparatively weighing the respective profits (My human potency(See also indirect application theory).

Media and human rights abuses

Human rights violations by mass media

Traditionally, sending large amounts of information to the massesMass communicationIs a traditionalMass media(tv set,News (Chinese),radio,PublicationEtc.News agency), it had to be a one-way distribution. By separating the mass media, which is the "sender of information," and the masses (general individuals) who are the "receivers of information,"Freedom of expression(Freedom of the press) Was unevenly distributed. For this reason, the mass media that is the "strong man" as an artist,Freedom of expression(Freedom of the press) Is fully exercised by theRight of privacy,Moral rightsInfringement of human rights has become a problem. As a typical example,Media damage,Media scrumAnd so on (Press damage #Freedom of press and human rights abusesreference).

Along with this, it has become possible for individuals to express their thoughts and opinions to the masses easily and inexpensively if desired by the individual. Such expression activities areFreedom of expression(Freedom of speech,Article 21 of the Constitution of JapanIt belongs to the category of 1). On the other hand, through such expressive activities,PoliciesOf the other person's "human rights" (respectivelyRight of privacy"Moral rights) Has come to conflict with matters belonging to the category.

And privacy violations on personal computer communication and the InternetLibelAnd so onLawsuitHas been awakened[8].. The judgment framework of the court can be summarized as follows. In other words, with regard to the right of privacy, once it has been made public and once it is infringed, it will be extremely difficult to recover it. Therefore, it is easy to justify disclosure in the name of freedom of expression. There is no. However, even in the case of an equal person, even if the right of honor and personality is violated by a speech such as an insulting remark, it can be restored by the subsequent expression activities (rebuttal, etc.). Therefore, a careful legal judgment is made after weighing the equivalent human rights of equal freedom such as "freedom of expression" and "personal rights" under individual specific circumstances (etc. Value and profit balance).
