Academic Security for Stability and Progress Academic Security for Stability and Progress Document Transcript

  • 1 Part I Scientific Aspects of Academic Security
  • 2 Academic Security for Stability and Progress Moskaliuk S.S. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at This report aims at a comprehensive conceptual treatment to produce a proposal for the Ukrainian academic security research agenda. The concept of academic security will consider that the causes for worldwide security problems have yet not been fully identified. The academic se- curity research topics, which are particularly important and interesting for Ukraine, were arranged in 12 thematic security research categories, which were bundled in five security research areas of this report: A. Fundamentals of academic security research 1. Scientific aspects of academic security research; 2. Technological questions of academic security research; 3. Academic security research for Ukraine related to the building the state of the ukrainian nation. B. Academic security research in the context of applied system and risk analysis 4. Applied system analysis in the context of uncertainty feeling; 5. Human risks and trust building; 6. Risks from war and terrorism. C. Academic security research in the context of stability and progress 7. Law aspects of academic security in the context of human rights and stability; 8. Academic security research of social-economic development; 9. Academic security research of the scientific and technical progress. D. Academic security research of hazard defence 10. Academic security building structures; 11. Hazard defence; 12. Domains of particular protection requirements. E. Academic security research of natural catastrophe and crisis man- agement.
  • 3 Part II Law Aspects of Academic Security
  • 4 Land Law in Ukraine in the context of Human Rights. I. Resolution of Internal Conflicts Kotok M. F., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at The international community is called upon to recognise internal con- icts at an early stage and to moderate and settle them. State power monopolies must be established and exercised with respect for human rights1 . 1 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 5 Land Law in Ukraine in the context of Human Rights. II. The Old Dictator Excuse Kotok M. F., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at Totalitarian regimes, political or religious sects or inflexible religious communities, and criminal organisations all attempt to refute the ap- plicability of human rights for their actions. They claim in particular that other values apply to their domains, human rights being the outflow of a dominant political regimes wishing to safeguard the existing social conditions. These objections, even if uttered sincerely, serve to conceal exploitation, repression and torture. Authoritarian, repressive and ex- ploitative systems, cliques or companies wish to pursue their criminal business undisturbed. Human rights are the only thing stopping them2 . 2 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 6 Challenges of Human Rights Today Manziuk I. V., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at Human rights have universal validity and are applicable to everyone. Their basic principles are continuously challenged by the evolution of social, political, economic and religious conditions. The desire for se- curity can if taken too far result in a restriction of human rights and paradoxically to the very insecurity that is being combated. New chal- lenges call for innovative, forward-looking responses that intensify and strengthen human rights.3 . 3 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 7 Strengthening and Consolidating Human Rights Moskalyuk D., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at Since the 1990s business has been undergoing a process of radical glob- alisation. The resultant challenges have worldwide repercussions. Re- sponses to these challenges must take account of the need for social justice, environmental protection and human rights. For its part the consolidation and strengthening of human rights is necessary to prevent social and environmental conicts or to reduce their consequences4 . 4 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 8 The Desire for Security Innovative Answers Required Motriuk N. M., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at Academic security is not seen as a security of governments from their citizens. The academic security agenda includes with the environmen- tal and social agenda too. Those who seek security must also seek en- vironmental protection and social justice. In the international context it should be borne in mind that the increasing world population, short- age of resources, and increasingly unjust distribution, exacerbated to an extent by climate change, are likely to lead to a rise in wars or terrorist confrontations. Technologies and structures that augment the vulnerability of a region or society are therefore a problem5 . 5 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 9 Information Security Motriuk N. M., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at The privatisation of the media results in increased competition. There is fierce rivalry for segments of the advertising market. Those who pro- duce cheaply and attract sucient attention can buy more expensive ad- vertising spots and operate at higher profit. Critical reports about econ- omy and truth about human rights violations and exicting social con- ditions are often sacrificed along the way. Critical press reports also are suppressed. Preference is given to those who can sell prefabricated video reports as their own research, providing companies and political parties with unfiltered access to private living rooms6 . 6 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 10 Equality of Women Olefir H. I., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at Lack of freedom and repression of women go hand in hand with social, political and environmental ills. Wherever women are repressed, other human rights are regularly violated. Those who wish to establish and safeguard peace must promote gender equality. This includes in partic- ular equal access to education, food, the right to legal protection and political office7 . 7 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 11 Migration Olefir H. I., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at The roots of global migratory movements can be found in the deterio- ration of living conditions, population explosions and the degradation of habitats. The causes of the migration northward must be removed. These include in particular the overfishing of fishing grounds that can be reached by traditional fishing boats and the undercutting of regional farming prices through international subsidised farming products. The erosion of state security gives transnational concerns unlimited control in particular over raw materials. State sovereignty and a state power monopoly must be established here8 . 8 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 12 Freedom of Thought Polianchuk I. M., et al. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at In the 1980s, it was nation states above all that sought to relativise hu- man rights to enable them to maintain their dictatorial regimes. Today these arguments are being used by political elite, criminal communi- ties and religious sects. Like the overthrown dictators of the past, they claim “other values” and demand immunity from criticism and non- intervention by the international community. Typically, the rights that these communities and sects demand for themselves are denied to those who disagree with them – members of other communities or critics9 . 9 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
  • 13 Universal Applicability of Human Rights Mykuliak P.P., Resunenko O. A. Austro-Ukrainian Institute for Science and Technology c/o AUI, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10/136, A-1040 Wien, Austria e-mail: aui@quark.itp.tuwien.ac.at Human rights are inalienable and indefeasible rights with respect to public authority. They are founded in natural law but also in rational law. The legitimation of a state is derived from the fact that it offers protection to the individual. As Kant in particular points out, the ac- knowledgement of human rights provides this legitimation and the basis for a state. The Charter of the United Nations contains a clear com- mitment by the community of states to promote and encourage respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all. Every state that joins the UN undertakes to abide by the UN Charter, including this commitment to promote and encourage respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all10 . 10 This research has been partially supported by the Gesellschaft zur F¨rderung von o Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
