The research cluster on Global Justice and Human Rights explores the study of the relationship between global governance, global justice, and human rights. The group brings students, faculty, activists and practitioners to critically engage research on such topics as decolonization, the state and global governance; anti-black and indigenous racism in governance theory and practice; the rights of people with disabilities; south-south relations and the ‘rewriting’ of ‘rights’; expert practices and global justice activism; human rights as discourse and relation; resistance, resilience, and humanitarianism response; redistributive justice, recognition and reconciliation.

Global Justice & Human Rights Research Cluster Bibliography

The Global Justice and Human Rights Research Cluster has compiled a working bibliography of research which examines the COVID-19 pandemic through the lens of global justice and human rights. This research highlights the implications of the coronavirus pandemic – alongside the varying public health measures and social restrictions associated with the management of the virus – on the protection of basic human rights, among them the right to health, privacy and movement. With attention to vulnerable peoples, this research also addresses a range of issues including the acute effects of the pandemic in places already in crisis which are experiencing protracted conflict (such as Palestine, Syria, Yemen, etc.), as well as public perceptions towards COVID-19 and matters of inequality, equity and access.

BIBLIOGRAPHY

If there is relevant research related to the implications of COVID-19 on the preservation of human rights and/or global justice which is not currently listed in the bibliography, please email us at [email protected] and we will consider it for inclusion.
