2020 Alice Tay Lecture on Law & Human Rights: Professor Sarah Joseph on "Human Rights and COVID-19"
The Freilich Project is pleased to invite you to this year's Alice Tay Lecture in Law and Human Rights.

Professor Sarah Joseph will be presenting on the topic:

'Human Rights and COVID-19"

COVID-19 is causing a health emergency but also a human rights emergency. All governments have human rights obligations (regarding rights to life and health) to take measures to combat COVID-19. However, those same measures often interfere with other human rights, such as rights to livelihood, education, association, family rights, and standards of mental health. How is it possible to work out the appropriate balance in this extraordinary time of COVID?
