Livestream: COVID-19 Vaccinations and Human Rights

Panel II of the Webinar Series on COVID-19 Vaccinations and International Law

28.06.2021

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has dominated political, academic, and societal debates for the past one and a half years. As soon as they became available in late 2020, COVID-19 vaccines brought contemporary human rights issues back to the front light and tested the foundations of human rights. From the human rights implications of compulsory vaccinations to the manifold limitations imposed on the freedom of expression and on free movement, the introduction of the vaccines highlighted ethical, political, and legal dilemmas.

The “COVID-19 Vaccinations and International Law” Webinar Series aims to discuss these and other related issues. The Webinar Series is organized by the Research Cluster on Human Rights and Humanitarian Protection of the Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict (IFHV) in cooperation with the ESIL Interest Group on International Human Rights Law.

The second panel on “COVID-19 Vaccinations and Human Rights” will take place on June 28th, 2021, at 10 am CEST. The panel will feature by Marko Milanovic (University of Nottingham) on ‘Vaccine Misinformation and Human Rights Law’, Iris Goldner Lang (University of Zagreb) on ‘Vaccination for Vacation: The Pros and Cons of EU COVID Certificates’, and Sissy Katsoni (IFHV) on ‘Compulsory Vaccinations and Human Rights’ and will leave room for an engaged discussion with the audience.
