Impacts of COVID-19 on Marginalized Groups: Implications for Policy and Advocacy


Add to My Calendar Thursday, April 2, 2020 12:10pm to 1:10pm


Pandemics affect individuals differently, with policy responses potentially worsening existing inequalities and discrimination for marginalized groups, such as women, children, older persons, those unhoused, people with disabilities, detainees, refugees, and migrants. Join us for a discussion on the risks of deepened inequality within the COVID-19 pandemic, and how governments can use a human rights-based and intersectional approach to ensure the rights of all persons are protected.

This virtual panel will feature Amanda Klasing (Human Rights Watch), Charanya Krishnaswami (Amnesty), and Vince Warren (Center for Constitutional Rights); moderated by Professor Jayne Huckerby (Duke).

Join the virtual panel online here.

The panel is part of a series convened by the Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute, Duke Law’s International Human Rights Clinic, Columbia Law School’s Center for Gender and Sexuality Law, and Just Security on COVID-19, Advancing Rights and Justice During a Pandemic.
