Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has sent shock waves through the international community, exposing systemic failures and highlighting injustices. At the same time, it has provided an opening to consider new approaches, including lessons for international law. On April 12 and 16, 2021, the University of Miami School of Law International and Graduate Law Programs and Human Rights Clinic, in collaboration with the Human Rights Society, Health Law Association, Environmental Law Program, and University of Miami International and Comparative Law Review hosted a symposium on the impact of COVID-19 on international law. The International Law and COVID-19 Symposium specifically focused on the intersections of COVID-19 with human rights and public health, including state obligations towards vulnerable populations, rights restrictions to protect public health, environmental aspects, reactions by international and regional human rights bodies, and public health responses
