About the Seminar
In the current COVID-19 scenario, debates on Human Rights again occupy the centre stage in view of enforced lockdowns. The developments which took place during lockdown challenged the human rights regime such as migrants’ movements in India and their conditions. The treatment and response from the central and state governments towards the vulnerable population raised questions about the right to livelihood as well as public health. The measures to control the pandemic, including that of developing and distributing vaccines to the least developed countries and vulnerable population is raising questions of discrimination impinging on the concept of social justice.
In view of the above, Electronic Journal of Social and Strategic Studies (EJSSS) together with VIT-AP School of Law are coming together to host a webinar with the objective of exploring the concept of public health as a human rights precept.
