On Sunday, October 31, 2021, the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies will be screening their second film this season, "Our Natural Right". Following the film screening will be a live discussion via Zoom on November 1, 2021 at 12:00PM EST / 7:00PM ILT with the film's Director, Yulie Cohen and Producers Udi Nir and Sagi Bornstein. About the film Over seven decades ago, the members of the People's Council sat down to draft the Declaration of Independence of the State of Israel. Every word and comma led to hours of debate. The declaration was signed, the State established, but the debate still rages. The grandchildren of the signers of the Declaration of Independence return to the hall in Tel Aviv where the document was signed. Who are the descendants of the people who established the state? What do they think of it today? Can they agree on one correct path for Israel? Natural Right raises once again the issues upon which the State of Israel has yet to decide, over seventy years after first attempting to do so.
Time to ethically reset the travel industry
In this talk, Dr. Pierce Randall compares three competing normative frameworks for understanding public health policy and what they say about surveillance: the transaction framework, which conceives of the public role of public health authorities as correcting for market failures in health; the common good framework, which conceives of public health interventions as correcting for moral failures of markets to promote our shared interests in population health; and the security interest framework, which draws on the contractualist tradition in political philosophy to evaluate public health interventions in light of the fundamental security interests members of society have and what policies they would accept to promote those interests. He will outline how the security interest framework can draw on resources from surveillance ethics to provide guidance on how to weigh privacy interests against the need to prevent the spread of disease.
