17 - Coronavirus and human rights special (part 2/2)
Play • 43 min
This week the UK parliament will debate the Coronavirus Bill, the most sweeping set of emergency powers since the Second World War. The bill will bring huge changes to mental health law, the entitlement to social care, burial and coronial laws, police powers... and more. The 329-page law will be debated in days rather than months. What impact will this have for human rights? In Part 2 of this coronavirus special I discuss the bill, and other issues arising from the pandemic, with an expert panel including barristers Caoilfhionn Gallagher QC and Nichola Higgins and academics Aoife Nolan and Judith Bueno De Mesquita. Part 1 is here: https://anchor.fm/better-human/episodes/16---Coronavirus-and-human-rights-special-Part-12-ebopmk
