Globalisation, Privacy, and Data Protection

A Glimpse of Changing Contours from a Human Rights Perspective

Though the union government made efforts to protect the data of individuals with the introduction of the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 and subsequently with the enactment of the Digital Personal Data Protection Bill, 2023, there are various lacunae which still need to be resolved. Against this background, the right to privacy and data protection in a globalised world is discussed, along with the need to bring about reforms for the effective implementation and protection of the same. 

In today’s era of globalisation, there is a constant debate revolving around the protection and enforcement of human rights across the globe. In a global­ised world, concerns have been raised by law enforcement agencies, policymakers and other stakeholders regarding the threats to and gross violation of human rights. These basic rights of individuals have been protected under various international conventions and instruments. According to Kofi Annan, the former United Nations (UN) Secretary General,

human rights are what make us human. They are the principles by which we create the sacred home for human dignity. Human rights are what reason requires and conscience commands. (Harees 2012)
