Book excerpt: We speak of the right to know with relative ease. You have the right to know the results of a medical test or to be informed about the collection and use of personal data. But what exactly is the right to know, and who should we trust to safeguard it? This book provides the first comprehensive examination of the right to know and other epistemic rights: rights to goods such as information, knowledge and truth. These rights play a prominent role in our information-centric society and yet they often go unnoticed, disregarded and unprotected. As such, those who control what we know, or think we know, exert an influence on our lives that is often as dangerous as it is imperceptible. Beginning with a rigorous but accessible philosophical account of epistemic rights, Lani Watson examines the harms caused by epistemic rights violations, drawing on case studies across medical, political and legal contexts. She investigates who has the right to what information, who is responsible for the quality and circulation of information and what epistemic duties we have towards each other. This book is essential reading for philosophers, legal theorists and anyone concerned with the protection and promotion of information, knowledge and truth. .

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Right to Know explores the crucial role of information in enabling women to protect their own health and the health of their families. Chapters on various countries expose the ways governments around the world censor, manipulate, and fail to provide information about abortion, contraception, AIDS, and other threats to reproductive health, and examine the role of religion, culture, and foreign aid programs in restricting information. Placing these practices in the context of international human rights law, the book identifies government obligations to respect women's right of access to information and lays out how these obligations can be applied in practice to protect women's health and reproductive choice.

Download or read book The Right to Know written by Ann Florini and published by Columbia University Press. This book was released on 2007 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Right to Know is a timely and compelling consideration of a vital question: What information should governments and other powerful organizations disclose? Excessive secrecy corrodes democracy, facilitates corruption, and undermines good public policymaking, but keeping a lid on military strategies, personal data, and trade secrets is crucial to the protection of the public interest. Over the past several years, transparency has swept the world. India and South Africa have adopted groundbreaking national freedom of information laws. China is on the verge of promulgating new openness regulations that build on the successful experiments of such major municipalities as Shanghai. From Asia to Africa to Europe to Latin America, countries are struggling to overcome entrenched secrecy and establish effective disclosure policies. More than seventy now have or are developing major disclosure policies or laws. But most of the world's nearly 200 nations do not have coherent disclosure laws; implementation of existing rules often proves difficu As governments and corporations battle with citizens and one another over the growing demand to submit their secrets to public scrutiny, they need new insights into whether, how, and when greater openness can serve the public interest, and how to bring about beneficial forms of greater disclosure. The Right to Know distills the lessons of many nations' often bitter experience and provides careful analysis of transparency's impact on governance, business regulation, environmental protection, and national security. Its powerful lessons make it a critical companion for policymakers, executives, and activists, as well as students and scholars seeking a better understanding of how to make information policy serve the public interest.

Download or read book The Right to Know and the Right Not to Know written by Ruth Chadwick and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2014-09-04 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The privacy concerns discussed in the 1990s in relation to the New Genetics failed to anticipate the relevant issues for individuals, families, geneticists and society. Consumers, for example, can now buy their personal genetic information and share it online. The challenges facing genetic privacy have evolved as new biotechnologies have developed, and personal privacy is increasingly challenged by the irrepressible flow of electronic data between the personal and public spheres and by surveillance for terrorism and security risks. This book considers the right to know and the right not to know about your own and others' genomes. It discusses new privacy concerns and developments in ethical thinking, with the greater emphasis on solidarity and equity. The multidisciplinary approach covers current topics such as biobanks and forensic databases, DIY testing, group rights and accountability, the food we eat and the role of the press and the new digital media.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book underscores the natural right of all humans to know God. Today, we are told that God is irrelevant to our livelihood and we do not need God for anything. This deception emanates from our lack of understanding of and about God. In this book, you will find insight into: -Who God really is. -How and why it is your right to know God. -The benefits of knowing God for the individual, nation and the Christian. -How Science tells us more about God. -How you can know God on a personal level and the stages of knowing God. -How you can discover yourself in God and the blessed privileges we all have in Christ Jesus. -And many more. Usually, our understanding of God is too human and we end up misunderstanding Him and subsequently missing out on knowing Him. This book is here to help you understand and know the true God who made you.

This book was released on 2009-07-28 with total page 86 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: To Whom It May Concern: My Flesh and Blood by Adoption is a nonfictional story about one man’s search for his natural parents. This story was aired twice on a local television news channel, KABC in Los Angeles, California in 1976 and was in the Los Angeles times; at the time that the search took place. This story, with all of its emotion and unusual twists and turns, will captivate readers as they read each chapter. It is a heartwarming story for anyone who has adopted a child, or is about to adopt. Packed with emotion, sadness, love and heartache, it will take you on one man’s journey and his determination to find his natural parents, while maintaining the love and devotion that he holds for his adoptive parents. While on this journey he will show detailed descriptions of how he went about searching with all its successes and failures. It will also outline some of the many adoption laws which vary from state to state that are in place to protect both of the families and how he was able to overcome his fears and follow his dreams. The author has had many requests from individuals who expressed their interest in reading this novel. One of the most frequently asked question has always been where they could purchase a copy of his novel. His response to all of them has been that he is currently awaiting its publication. I hope that you the reader will give this novel the recognition it deserves and the opportunity for it to be published. It is inspirational, emotional and a powerful journey which I invite you to take. Sincerely, Rick L Weiner
