Respecting Language As Part Of Ethnicity: Title Vii And Language Discrimination At Work, Carlo A. Pedrioli 2011 American Bar Foundation

Respecting Language As Part Of Ethnicity: Title Vii And Language Discrimination At Work, Carlo A. Pedrioli

Carlo A. Pedrioli

This article argues that, in the absence of a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason or a business necessity, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act can protect employees from language-based discrimination in the workplace. Language is a part of one’s ethnicity, which refers to one’s culture. Ethnicity, much as race already does, should receive protection under Title VII. Plaintiffs, however, have the burden of proof in litigation, and so a plaintiff who sues under a discrimination theory should have to make his or her case to the appropriate fact-finder.

Drawing upon the insights of critical theory, particularly to explore ...

Privacy Na De 'Computationele Wending', Mireille Hildebrandt 2011 Radboud University Nijmegen

Privacy Na De 'Computationele Wending', Mireille Hildebrandt

Mireille Hildebrandt

In deze bijdrage zal ik mij richten op de gevolgen van het doorzoeken van grote datasets en het toepassen van de kennis die daaruit wordt ‘gemijnd’. Zowel het bedrijfsleven als de overheid verwachten veel van dit soort kennis, respectievelijk als marketing-instrument dan wel als manier om criminaliteit te voorspellen. In beide gevallen gaat het vooral om een techniek waarmee zo snel en zo precies mogelijk maatwerk ‘op de persoon’ kan worden geleverd. De vraag in hoeverre de betreffende computationele technieken die belofte waarmaken – de effectiviteitsvraag – staat in deze bijdrage niet centraal. Voor de goed orde ga ik er hier vanuit ...


Criminal Liability And 'Smart' Environments, Mireille Hildebrandt 2011 SelectedWorks

Criminal Liability And 'Smart' Environments, Mireille Hildebrandt

Mireille Hildebrandt

The spread of smart applications touches the foundations of the criminal law, notably causality, wrongfulness, and legal personhood. First, distributed multi-agent systems form hybrid networks that exhibit emergent behaviours that cannot be attributed to either one of the agents or explained in terms of an aggregation of actions. This makes it hard to determine which action actually caused the harm or the damage that would normally be addressed by the criminal law. Second, it is hard to imagine a smart environment or infrastructure itself becoming the culprit of a criminal charge, but at some point we may have to concede ...


Legal Protection By Design. Objections And Refutations, Mireille Hildebrandt 2011 Radboud University Nijmegen

Legal Protection By Design. Objections And Refutations, Mireille Hildebrandt

Mireille Hildebrandt

To cope with an increasingly proactive technological infrastructure a so-called vision of Ambient Law has been developed. It entails the articulation of legal protection into the ICT architecture, to safeguard our rights and freedoms within the various cyberspaces we inhabit. I will argue that the Internet of Things and Ambient Intelligence generate novel challenges to the rights to privacy, due process and non-discrimination, warranting effective remedies beyond the written law. The vision of Ambient Law builds on similar notions within the domain of ethics of technology (e.g. privacy by design, privacy by default, value-sensitive design). Expanding on previous publications ...


De Contrafakticiteit Van De Rechtsstaat In Een Postnationale Rechtsorde, Mireille Hildebrandt 2011 Radboud University Nijmegen

De Contrafakticiteit Van De Rechtsstaat In Een Postnationale Rechtsorde, Mireille Hildebrandt

Mireille Hildebrandt

In deze bijdrage wil ik de implicaties van de meervoudig gelaagde rechtsordes voor de rechtsstaat traceren. Ik ga bij het begin beginnen en dat betekent dat ik niet heel ver zal komen binnen het bestek van een hoofdstuk binnen een Festschrift. Aan een antwoord op de prangende vragen die deze problematiek oproept komt deze bijdrage niet toe, en het lijkt erop dat die antwoorden ook niet zomaar van achter de tekentafel gegeven kunnen worden. Het gaat erom de gedachten te bepalen, en daarbij is een goed begin is van groot belang. Het vervolg is deels al verwerkt in ander werk ...

Turning Knowledge Into Wisdom: Improving The Reading Comprehension Ability Of Efl Students Through Thinking Analytically And Reading Critically, Mohammad Ali Nasrollahi, Mohammad Sadeghi 2011 Technical & Vocational University of Iran

Turning Knowledge Into Wisdom: Improving The Reading Comprehension Ability Of Efl Students Through Thinking Analytically And Reading Critically, Mohammad Ali Nasrollahi, Mohammad Sadeghi

Mohammad Ali Nasrollahi(Ph.D)

This study explores the ways in which Critical Reading (CR) practices can improve reading comprehension ability of Iranian EFL students. In the present study, the following null hypothesis was proposed: The application of critical reading has no significant effect on improving the reading comprehension ability of Iranian EFL students. The proposed design was a pretest-posttest groups design. Hence, a group of seventy homogeneous students were selected. They were randomly assigned to control and experimental groups. Then both groups enjoyed a series of similar instructions except that the students in experimental group were required to express their own opinions about and ...
