Abstract

Under Art. 16 of the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), “Everyone shall have the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.” Both national and international laws provide expanded regulation of different aspects of the personality of individuals as well as protection of different categories of human rights. IT development, however, changes the existing pattern of international relations a lot. As a result, individuals become more and more active actors in the international arena. The paper is devoted to the problem of the international personality of an individual in modern international law. It reviews the notion of international personality and focuses on contemporary challenges and changes in the rights, obligations and competence of individuals. Special attention is paid to the impact this activities carried out in cyberspace have on the status of individuals.
