COVID-19 and Human Rights, From All Angles

While the Human Rights at Home blog focuses on the U.S., COVID-19's impact is worldwide.  For more international perspectives on human rights and COVID-19, check out the blog series launched by the Raoul Wallenberg Institute for Human Rights.  So far, posts have come from human rights experts in China, Africa, Europe, and the U.S..  Topics include indigenous rights, emergency measures, and social solidarity, and blogs range from legal analyses to personal reflections.  There is more to come in the series, so check back as this challenging situation continues to unfold and test human rights around the world.  As RWI Senior Researcher Alejandro Fuentes writes in his blog posting, "This new pandemic, that is affecting all of us, is not only affecting our fundamental rights and freedoms . . . but also the way that we see ourselves, the manner that we imagine and conceive our societies."
