About the Conference
Human rights are the basic rights that every human is entitled to and even though humans have succeeded in reaching the moon and have technologically advanced yet we have failed as a society to ensure and guarantee this basic right to everyone.
The global COVID-19 crisis has been fuelled by deepening poverty, rising inequalities, structural and entrenched discrimination and other gaps in human rights protection. Only measures to close these gaps and progress and growth in human rights can ensure full recovery of the world, that is better and more resilient, just and sustainable.
The aim of this Conference is to call for papers and bring together nationally and internationally acclaimed academicians, students, human rights activists and other intellectuals on one platform to discuss the various issues concerning intersectionality between human rights and Covid, and to discuss the measures to curb such issues.
Human rights are the common denominator of human beings, because they rely upon human dignity. They are applied regardless of nationality, religion or belief, race, ethnicity, gender. In coalition to satisfy and advance the goals of the UWSL Center for Research on Human Rights, this conference is going to address various issues including the protection of Human values and lives in the times of Covid through the universal recognition.
The call for papers is open to undergraduate / postgraduate students, Ph.D. Scholars and Academicians / Professionals and to bring together policy-makers, managers, various other stakeholders and dedicated organizations in the relevant fields for a constructive dialogue on the various aspects of the theme.
