The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed humanity to a very different vision of humanity’s future. A vast array of humans life has been altered with legal implications following the pandemic like never before. Under the pretext of keeping public health, numerous rights, such as freedom of movement and freedom of assembly, have been either curtailed or limited in very unequal ways without a clear indication of when or how they will be restored. This pandemic has been experienced in a very different way for every group in society. As inequality became wider, this pandemic has also been disrupting deeply both social and economic fabrics and eroding the government’s legitimacy and yet capacity to take necessary, proportional, and appropriate actions in tackling the issue effectively. At the same time, the acceleration of digitalization has transformed the mode of production radically bringing consequences where a lot of jobs lost during the pandemic never return again. The mode of information was altered deeply with the inception of more digitalized forms and consciousness of communication, in the public side, (it is) marked by the rise of counter-narrative in form of ‘conspiracy theories and in the government side with the emergence of a new model of state’s surveillance. Therefore, the understanding of the law and human rights should be reimagined in a very different vision.
This forum strives to highlight the divergent problems and issues relating to the various facets of law and human rights related to the impact caused by the pandemic. Important to note that the pandemic also has a very different magnitude on Global North and Global South. A wide range of approaches and discussions should be scrutinized in a very careful way. As the pandemic convulses government confidence and public resilience greatly, trial and error should not be taken for granted, bold and inclusive approaches are much more urgent than ever before.
Therefore in the wake of such looming crises, the NIMT Institute of Method and Law, Greater Noida calls up and invites scholars, practitioners, and policymakers at all stages and across disciplinary boundaries to contribute to the Forum on Law and Human Rights in May 2022. Innovative and experimental ideas are strongly encouraged to be submitted. Given the current situation, the meeting would be held both virtually and on campus.
