39th Annual Human Rights Course 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted and worsened the gaps of a system with clear effects on the enjoyment and safeguarding of human rights: great inequalities, deficiencies of the capitalist system and a weakened, insufficient welfare state. As the virus spreads, the authorities have been forced to take measures to control it, although sometimes they have been and are excessively restrictive, stigmatising and punitive, leading to human rights violations. Throughout the sessions key elements will be analysed and reflected on which presently extend to almost all the areas of life and human rights: the climate crisis and deterioration of the environment, new technologies and mechanisms for protecting universal and regional systems. Approaches that will bring an understanding of the challenges arising from this climatic emergency and new technologies, taking into account in particular the effects on human rights.
