Over the past few months, the coronavirus has had a major impact on many different facets of our daily lives. One topic that isn't often addressed however, is the impact the pandemic has, and will continue to have, on human rights.
In this second episode of our special series which examines a post coronavirus world, we examine how the pandemic has changed how human rights are viewed and respected, how it is affecting victims of domestic violence, and how it has become a barrier, in some instances, for the exercise of human rights.
This episodes features guests from the Graduate Institute's International Law department and include Vincent Chetail, Professor of International Law, Chair of the International Law Department, Director of the Global Migration Centre (Graduate Institute) and President of the Board of the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights; Andrew Clapham, Professor of International Law, he was the first Director of the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights (June 2006 - July 2014). He teaches international human rights law, the laws of war, and public international law; and Stefania Di Stefano, a PhD candidate at the Graduate Institute. Her doctoral research focuses on the human rights implications stemming from the role that social media platforms perform in today's society.
