International Human Rights Impacts of the COVID-19 Crisis

The International Human Rights Impacts of the COVID-19 Crisis is a project conducted in conjunction with the Global Health Law Consortium, a collaborative interdisciplinary research initiative focused on advancing global health law. The project is examining the human rights dimensions of the COVID-19 crisis.

The project has three parts: The first part broadly looks at human rights compliance of states within the context of COVID-19. The second analyses trends in digital surveillance and the human rights impact for individuals and states. The last part of the project examines how a human rights approach to the COVID-19 vaccine could lead to different outcomes.

The project involves Dr Sharifah Sekalala and Belinda Rawson from the School of Law, University of Warwick, Katrina Perehudoff from the University of Amsterdam, Lisa Forman from the School of Public Health, UNC Chapel Hill , Benjamin Mason Meier from the Department of Public Policy, UNC-Chapel Hill, Stephanie Dragon,Institute of Global Health, University of Geneva and Roojin Habibi, from the Global Strategy Lab, York University Canada.
