Algorithmic decision-making systems have become increasingly pervasive in various facets of society, ranging from hiring processes and financial services to criminal justice systems and healthcare. However, the widespread adoption of algorithms raises concerns about potential biases embedded within these systems and their impact on human rights. This research paper examines the intersection between algorithmic bias and human rights, highlighting the implications for fairness, equality, and justice in our increasingly digitized world. Drawing on interdisciplinary literature and case studies, the paper explores the underlying causes of algorithmic bias, its manifestations across different domains, and the ethical and legal frameworks necessary to address these challenges. By analyzing the complex dynamics between technology, society, and human rights, this paper aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of the critical issues at stake and propose strategies for mitigating algorithmic bias to safeguard fundamental human rights.
