The Value of Human Rights in a Pandemic

October 26, 2021 | by: Danira Karović

This panel would look into the situation with human rights and the pandemic, how did we approach this issue, how and where are we now with it, what are the obstacles, questions, dilemmas and where are the lines in dealing with human rights in the pandemic. Topics will include but are not limited to vaccination, COVID-19 related restrictive measures, domestic violence, marginalized groups, freedom of speech and online rights, etc. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has also drawn public attention worldwide on respecting human rights and freedoms and has opened up many questions and dilemmas regarding limits in our everyday life. Through this panel discussion, we will try to open only some issues and establish a link between respect for human rights and freedoms with current topics such as vaccination, restrictive measures related to COVID-19, but also talk about domestic violence, freedom of speech and online rights, as well as the impact of the pandemic on marginalized groups.
