The present chapter examines how the technologies of the internet, smart phone, computer, social media and artificial intelligence decision-making processes interplay and transform human lives. In particular, the chapter focuses on how the employment of these technologies produces effects on how individuals perceive and act as well as on their well-being. It uses the theoretical framework of media ecology to pursue this line of inquiry. The chapter traces how various effects occur at different scales as well as how such effects interplay with one another. It puts forward that in order for international human rights law to be an effective tool of global governance in regard to digital technologies, it is necessary to reconceptualise the concepts of harm and governance. It is vital to interpret existing legal norms in a purposive manner in order to accommodate this process of rethinking. Doing so will allow states to remedy some of the causes which contribute to violations of fundamental rights in the digital context.
