The COVID-19 pandemic is exposing gaps and inequities in our systems of caring but also creating opportunities for innovation that could serve us well post-pandemic. Join five researchers and activists as they explore the impact the pandemic is having on the rights of vulnerable children and adults.

On October 7, 2020, the Centre for Human Rights Research hosted a virtual panel on “Work, Care, and Human Rights in the Age of COVID”, exploring:
– Stripped of dignity: Death and dying in the time of COVID, Harare, 2020
– Planning and projects in a COVID-19 environment
– Towards equitable and educative experiences in a pandemic
– Childcare before, during and after COVID
– Older persons’ rights: Isolation, agism and pandemic responses.

The panel was chaired by Dr. Adele Perry, Director of the CHRR.
