The Promise Institute for Human Rights at UCLA School of Law

States of Emergency and Government Powers in and After the Pandemic

Columbia's Human Rights Institute, the Duke International Human Rights Clinic (Jayne Huckerby and Aya Fujimura-Fanselow), Columbia's Center on Gender and Sexuality Law (Katherine Franke), and the national security blog Just Security series virtual event series collaboration:

COVID-19: Advancing Rights and Justice During a Pandemic

As governments respond to the novel coronavirus, many are declaring states of emergency and giving themselves expansive powers. Some censor information, surveil populations, and detain critics. Are governments overreaching? Will new powers be rolled back when the crisis is over? Join us for a discussion between Fionnuala Ni Aolain (UN Special Rapporteur on Counterterrorism), Isabel Linzer (Freedom House), and Yaqiu Wang (Human Rights Watch); moderated by Ryan Goodman (NYU/Just Security).
