CALL FOR PARTICIPATION IN A ROUNDTABLE WITH STUDENTS: “THE CHALLENGES OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MIDST OF PANDEMICS”

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION IN A ROUNDTABLE WITH STUDENTS: “THE CHALLENGES OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MIDST OF PANDEMICS”

Human Rights Day is coming! On that occasion, to mark the importance of respecting Human Rights the International Balkan University organizes a round table on the topic “The challenges of Human Rights in the Midst of Pandemics”.

As the world was hammered by pandemic COVID-19 early this year, so were the basic human rights. In a short space of time, a set of measures and restrictions were adopted by authorities in the name of defending public health. These measures and restrictions intersect directly and violate or restrict some basic human rights such as the freedom of movement, the right to manifest religion, the right to leave the country and to return, and other human rights. Now that we face the second wave of pandemics and as a result, new measures and restrictions are likely to be taken, a fair amount of questions arises. The questions vary widely, from whether are such measures and restrictions are needed and to what extent should they expand.

So as a repercussion of a such situation, this year`s topic on honoring Human Rights Day will be: “The challenges of Human Rights in the Midst of Pandemics”.

All students are encouraged to participate in this academic discussion with their own ideas as a solution to this significant issue. Students will have the opportunity to illustrate their ideas by pinpointing the challenges that Human Rights are facing during the pandemic and to provide a legal formula on the defense of Human Rights throughout this tough challenge.
