Impacts of COVID-19 on Marginalized Groups: Implications for Policy and Advocacy

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

Pandemics affect individuals differently, with policy responses potentially worsening existing inequalities and discrimination for marginalized groups, such as women, children, older persons, those unhoused, people with disabilities, detainees, refugees, and migrants. Join us for a discussion on the risks of deepened inequality within the COVID-19 pandemic, and how governments can use a human rights-based and intersectional approach to ensure the rights of all persons are protected. The panel features Amanda Klasing (Human Rights Watch) and Charanya Krishnaswami (Amnesty); moderated by Professor Jayne Huckerby (Duke).
