From Principles to Practice: Human Rights and Public Health Emergencies

New posts every Tuesday and Thursday!

The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law, Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics, together with the Global Health Law Consortium, the International Commission of Jurists, and the University of Ottawa Center for Health Law, Policy and Ethics, are thrilled to launch a new digital symposium on the 2023 Principles and Guidelines on Human Rights and Public Health Emergencies (the Principles). Featuring guest editors Timothy Fish Hodgson, Roojin Habibi, and Alicia Ely Yamin, this Symposium gathers critique and reflections from leading scholars, activists, jurists and others from around the world on the contribution of the Principles in clarifying legal imperatives for rights-based approaches to public health emergency prevention, preparedness, and response.
