COVID-19 Virtual Conversation
The Tanner Humanities Center has partnered with Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute and many other institutions to convene a virtual conversation series—COVID-19: Advancing Rights and Justice During a Pandemic.
The impacts of the novel coronavirus are being felt across the world, and in all domains of our lives, from physical and mental health, to job security, housing, and family life. Existing inequalities are more visible than ever, with the burdens of the crisis falling on some much more than others. Some governments are exploiting the crisis to crackdown on civil liberties. This series brings together scholars and practitioners to discuss the threats we face, and how we might respond.
