COVID-19 has unearthed a global recognition that “we must do things differently.”  The uncertainty has called into question our shared vulnerabilities and shared humanity. What progress have we made on global human rights? What lessons can history teach us about our failure to prioritize human rights in moments of crisis?

In this episode, we’ll discuss justice, intersectionality and the COVID-19 response with two leaders at the forefront of defending human rights. We explore our responsibility toward the world’s most vulnerable populations and how to ensure the COVID-19 response does not set back human rights trends globally.

Learn from expert voices:
Mary Robinson - Former President of Ireland; former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights; Chair of The Elders
Prince Zeid Raad Al Hussein - Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
