COVID-19 and Public International Law Session I

On 15 July 2020, our Faculty Director Benedict Kingsbury participated in a virtual conference on ‘COVID-19 and Public International Law’. During the conference, which was hosted by Dr. Donna Lyons (Trinity College Dublin School of Law), leading experts discussed a range of pressing issues relating to Covid-19 and global governance, including: human rights protection, distributive justice, the gendered effects of the pandemic, data infrastructures, inquiries into deaths arising out of the pandemic, the World Health Organisation, environmental regulation, and the practical implications of the pandemic on the work of international organisations.

Trinity Law School has made a link available for recordings of the conference. Prof. Kingsbury’s talk on data infrastructures is midway through Part 2.
