DATA PROTECTION AND INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW: PROTECTING VULNERABLE PERSONS DURING SITUATIONS OF ARMED CONFLICT

Research Details

No one ever wants to air their dirty linen in public. People generally want to keep certain parts of their lives hidden from the public eye. Data protection which is an offshoot of the ‘right to be left alone (right to privacy)’, confers rights on every citizen to have their personal data protected. Personal data loosely refers to data that can single out a person as an individual. It included identities such as name, address, vehicle license registration number, etc. This right becomes all the more important within the context of armed conflict as a breach of personal data and acts of cyberwarfare may result in more grievous consequences than one’s secret being leaked. This paper examines the right to privacy in light of the principles of International Humanitarian Law. This paper examines the right to privacy of certain vulnerable populations within an armed conflict. This paper also examines the nexus between data protection and armed conflict, the existing legal framework for data protection in armed conflict, and the limitation of this existing framework. This paper finds that while the Tallin Manual and the ICRC Rules on Data Protection cover issues of data protection during armed conflict, the Tallin Manual is not binding on states. This paper also finds that there is a need to bridge the gap and bring the law up to speed with modern realities. This paper concludes that cyber warfare is an emerging concern in modern warfare and there is a need for it to be properly regulated. Finally, this paper recommends that a treaty be adopted to fill this lacuna.
