Corporate actors have not accumulated and wielded power – to the extent that they have – in defiance of international law or in its absence. They have done so through the deft navigation and wielding of international legal rights and norms and by aligning and embedding their interests with and within states and international organizations – Fleur Johns pointed in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.

The progressives are looking at supranational solutions. The conservative view opposes these supranational solutions because it sees them as pulling apart the nation state and diluting its sovereignty. The sovereignty-based approach holds that nation states are the most important actors. They should cooperate to tackle global problems but they should never cede their sovereignties to anybody else – Professor John Yoo pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.

“The United States began to follow a different political pattern than Western democracies traditionally had — one that escaped democratic accountability. Certain non-governmental actors, notably foundations, were now licensed to bring about political change — not through the people’s representatives in Congress, but through the courts and the regulatory agencies" – Christopher Caldwell pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.

Today, it is evident that the tech companies have become a threat for our democracies and bring more polarization in society. They have to be regulated. The European proposals that are the precursors of coming national laws, such as in Hungary have the right approach – Jan A.G.M. VAN DIJK, Professor of University of Twente pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.

It is far from clear what solution there might be to the problems raised by the digital platforms. Breaking up the platforms is likely to be temporary because network effects will be likely to cause the markets to tip back to large dominant players – Douglas Melamed, Professor of the Practice of Law at Stanford Law School pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.
Algorithmic decision making risks undermining the legal system – conversation with Professor Christopher Markou2021. január 22. 22:00
Artificial Intelligence poses the challenge of automating the cognitive domain. Where we define the line between what is helpful in extending our capabilities and what is simply replacing them is I think a fundamental question of philosophy, but one that has direct challenges for deliberative democracy and the possibility of normative discourse – explain Christopher Markou Professor of Law at Cambridge University in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the American Studies Research Institute of the National University of Public Service, located in Budapest.

Fairness in accountable and explainable processes needs to set the expectation for technological development. This means investment in talents and research, for sure, but it needs to be of a multidisciplinary variety, encouraging also the traditional academic organisations to ensure stronger collaborative abilities between different faculties, and the surrounding society – Stefan Larsson, Associate Professor in Technology and Social Change at Lund University pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher of the National University of Public Service.

Human rights are not primarily about legality but rather moral commitments and morally informed actions on a collective political level. That is the place of nation state sovereignty. Law can of course play an important role in codifying sovereign decisions, but laws cannot take the place of sovereignty – conversation with David Tse-Chien Pan.

“The ongoing debate over federalism was at the forefront of fighting slavery and a bloody Civil War and, later, dividing the country over such issues as enacting the New Deal, desegregating public schools, implementing capital punishment, regulating abortion rights, recognizing same-sex marriage, and protecting public safety by wearing masks and enduring lockdowns during a highly infectious, and deadly, pandemic” – Christopher Banks, professor at the Kent State University, pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.

“There appears to have always been a consensus that the United States should not set up a formal, national religious establishment, but it’s highly unlikely that the ratifiers codified a handbook for local school officials about things like holiday displays or prayers before football games.” – Richard Garnett, law professor at the University of Notre Dame pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service on the principle of Federalism, the freedom of religion and the unique American way of life.

President Trump has run the most conservative administration in the post-World War II period. That older conservatism and Republicanism, which Trump has revived, favored an immigration policy that was more restrictionist and focused on assimilation and the importance of patriotic citizenship; had a more realistic and modest foreign policy; and passed trade policies that first and foremost looked to the health of the middle and working classes rather than merely national GDP or abstractions like “free trade.” – Ryan Williams, President of the Claremont Institute pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher of the National University of Public Service.

The economic and information globalizations pose new threats and challenges to the protection of human rights. The ongoing international regulatory efforts in this area offer great opportunities to enable clarity around the obligations of transnational companies, including large tech companies – pointed out by Robert McCorquodale, Professor of International Law and Human Rights at the Nottingham University during a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the American Studies Research Institute of the National University of Public Service, located in Budapest.

“Because John Roberts is less likely to be the swing vote now, there is more chance for a high consequence case that helps Trump even as it puts the court reputation at risk” – Jesse Richman pointed out in an interview on day after the 2020 presidential election.
