INTERNATIONAL LAW OF HUMAN RIGHTS

Статьи в номере 1 за 2017 год

Аннотация: By studying the relation between human rights and a referendum, the author of this paper comes to the conclusion that a referendum may have both negative and positive impacts on human rights. The referendum offers, on the one hand, direct democracy. On the other hand, the referendum may increase the number of issues in relation to discrimination against minority groups or minority democracy (Referendums are dominated by elite groups). It also risks consequences including potential unconstitutional impact and its affect to constitutional rights of citizens and limits the right of the Representative Government. Nevertheless, the paper argues that the referendum is, on balance, a net contributor to the human rights development extending democracy for citizens in terms of political and civil rights. This support is based on democratic arguments, as well as obligations incurred by governments that are member states to international human rights conventions and, thereby, committed to implementing relevant provisions.

Аннотация: This article analyzes important issues of Human Rights Law. In particular it focuses on the issue of a state interest and trust. This problem is considered in the light of international law sources such as the International Covenant for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant for Civil and Political Rights. It is noted that these acts are vague and unclear; therefore State Parties cannot enforce them. The issue of Human Rights is revealed in the context of demonstration of states’ self-interest. International human rights appear to be remote and disconnected from the very persons they seek to protect. In this connection the author considers a matter of the International Human Rights Court.
