12 April 2021: CIL Director Dr Nilüfer Oral Was Invited by the University of Miami School of Law to Speak at their “International Law & COVID-19 SYMPOSIUM”
COVID-19 has upended our reality in many ways, exposing systemic failures and highlighting injustices. At the same time, it has provided an opening to consider new approaches. The International Law and COVID-19 Symposium, hosted by the University of Miami School of Law International and Graduate Law Programs and Human Rights Clinic, in collaboration with the Human Rights Society, Health Law Association, and University of Miami International and Comparative Law Review —will examine the impact of COVID-19 on international law. In particular, the symposium will focus on intersections of COVID-19 with human rights and public health, including state obligations towards vulnerable populations, rights restrictions to protect public health, environmental aspects, reactions by international and regional human rights bodies, and public health responses.
