In the chapter the authors explore the growing corporate social responsibility movement, and the evolving interrelationships and expectations of states, non-governmental organizations, and corporations. They focus specifically on the development of new conceptions of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as an expansion of the concept of human rights across several generations, with special attention to communication rights in the new media environment. They suggest that emerging communication technologies in the digital age are now reshaping concern with employee and stakeholder communication rights. These concerns transcend issues of the workplace and expand the public and scholarly conception of human rights.

This chapter examines how digital technologies are harnessed in public deliberations about human rights issues employing a case study involving discussions of what appropriate categories of gender identity, (e.g. transgender, gender diverse, gender-nonconforming) should be implemented in the 2018 New Zealand census. It begins with an overview of the relationship between digital technologies and human rights, followed by a discussion on digital technologies and deliberative democracy and the use of the Loomio platform. It concludes that the process adopted has had positive effects in terms of the discourse and understanding about gender and gender diversity within New Zealand.

Expanding Human Rights

21st Century Norms and Governance

Edited by Alison Brysk and Michael Stohl

The 21st century demands expanding rights, as the established human rights regime is necessary but not sufficient. This project will analyze the global dynamics of the mobilization of new actors, claims, institutions and modes of accountability. Our multi-disciplinary, multi-method analysis draws from a full range of global experience, with balanced attention to civil-political and social-economic rights; from LBGT movements in the new Europe to campaigns for the right to food in India.
