Lockdowns, weekend quarantine, fines for not wearing masks, remote learning, unemployment, fatigue, and uncertainty. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone in one way or another. Changes associated with the corona crisis did not just shake our financial situation, but also transformed our lives, thinking, and affected our values. We have survived two lockdowns and felt human rights retreat into the background when collective safety was at stake.
In this discussion, we will talk about the changes that happened in the government’s humanitarian policies, particularly in terms of overcoming poverty, corporate ethics, health care, and communications. We will also explore how a crisis in these areas has affected the situation with human rights in Ukraine and globally, and try to predict what we can expect next.
