Legal Issues in Dealing with COVID-19: Laurel Fletcher & Katerina Linos, “International Law and COVID-19″

Monday, May 18, 2020 @ 12:50 pm - 2:00 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a number of complex international legal issues that will be explored in this week’s talk. Who is responsible for addressing a global pandemic? What is the role of the World Health Organization? What is the role of China, and how will lawsuits against it fare? Are government border closures legal? What about other restrictions on fundamental rights that governments around the world are adopting?  We will also look at some of the human rights impacts of the pandemic and how governments are using their authority to combat COVID-19 to target human rights activists.
